Hergüner hosted the Austrian Commercial Attaché

Hergüner Bilgen Özeke hosted the Georgetown Alumni Club’s first event in the new year on January 5, 2017 and was honored to include the participation of Austrian Commercial Attaché Mr. Christian Maier, PhD.

The Georgetown event opened with a cocktail reception and proceeded with a speech by Mr. Maier during which he remarked on the successful economic partnership between Austria and Turkey, which has grown out of the two countries’ historical ties, starting with their competitive relationship during the Habsburg and Ottoman Empires, once neighboring great powers, just a few centuries ago. The guests also enjoyed an interactive Q&A                                                                                                                       session at the end of the event.
