JDI France had the honour of speaking with two officers from the U.S. Embassy in France at Hôtel de Tallerand. 🇺🇸
The panel consisted of Cultural attaché Brian Bauer and Political officer Laila Hasan. Speakers shared their professional experiences and talked about their respective career path in the field of diplomacy. The officers also shared their takes on the dynamics of the U.S-French relations as diplomats based in Paris and on China’s growing soft power and influence in Africa and Europe through the Silk Road initiative.
Many thanks to Maureen Siegel from the US Embassy France!
