U.S. General Consul Richard Yoneoka visits the Institute

On November 4, 2016 U.S. General Consul Mr. Richard Yoneoka paid our Institute a short visit.

Seminar room 23 was turned into a stage for a lively discussion with students, staff and members of the Nordamerikafreunde Greifswald e.V., among the discussion topics being the Volkswagen affair, WikiLeaks, the alleged two-party system, the ballot system and many anecdotes from Mr. Yoneoka's world-wide experience as a diplomat.

The General Consul encouraged us to ask for study materials and meetings, understanding the cultivation of the German-American partnership as a main part of his work.
