The opening event has been attended by the official delegation from Vinnytsia region of Ukraine led by Head of Vinnytsia Regional State Administration Mr. Valerii Korovii and comprised of local government representatives and top managers of key regional businesses who are currently visiting Washington, DC to explore economic opportunities for the region and study the experience of attracting investments.
As Ambassador Valeriy Chaliy has noted, it is very important that people, who come to our Embassy, can make their first positive impression about Ukraine here. The new exhibition fits this purpose very well. Photos depict Ukrainian cultural heritage, love to native land and social tolerance, despite grave challenges that Ukraine is facing in connection to Russian aggression. The local community and Ukrainian diplomats were the first to see the new exhibition.
The Ambassador told delegates from Vinnytsia region about Embassy’s work, including public diplomacy projects. They discussed the ways in which the Embassy can be helpful in extending economic cooperation of the region and agreed to work further on that.
