The luncheon programs are designed to be a combination of cultural education, public diplomacy outreach, political-economic briefing, and commercial briefing by visiting Embassy or Consular officials including Trade Attachés.  The luncheon format is a panel discussion followed a Q&A session.  Local business owners or executives serve a vital role on the panels as may local academic or cultural experts.  Networking with presenters and fellow business peers is a vital element of the luncheon format.
Private meetings with Embassy or Consular officials or visiting dignitaries can be arranged on a customized basis upon request.
