Ambassador Dora Rapold meets Boston's young talents
Despite the bitter Boston winter-or perhaps because of it- swissnex Boston welcomed a Swiss Foreign Services delegation led by Ambassador Dora Rapold on Wednesday, February 16, 2011, for a day packed with talks and visits.
Ambassador Rapold, who heads the Political Division of the Americas within the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs in Bern, and her Deputy Daniel Hunn were joined by Guillaume Scheurer, Deputy Head of Mission; Christoph Ebell, Advisor for Science and Technology, and Stephan Klauser of the Swiss Embassy in Washington D.C.
Given her vast experience in development aid, Ambassador Rapold
showed particular interest in Prof. Bohnet's work on women development and the Harvard initiative "Closing the Global Gender Gap."
Around fine Swiss food, Ambassador Rapold
reminded invitees of the two countries' strong bilateral bonds.
