The Ivy Circle of the Netherlands organized a proper send-off for a group of students traveling to the United States of America to study next semester.  Acting Consul General John Wilcock was on hand to give remarks. The event was held in the middle of the sunny Vondelpark in Amsterdam.

Acting Consul General John Wilcock stressed the importance for both countries to continue their intercultural dialogue through educational exchange which is also one of the pillars of the State Department’s diplomacy efforts.
