Members of the Congress-Bundestag Forum visit the Embassy

Ambassador Emerson met today with members of two Bundestag delegations that were sent to DC and California in fall 2014 as part of the Congress-Bundestag Forum.  The Congress Bundestag Forum is a joint project of the German Marshall Fund and the Robert Bosch Foundation that brings together young newly elected members of the German Bundestag with their counterparts in the United States Congress.  Participants in the forum, which is held every year and alternates between Germany and the USA, study current affairs and talk with decision makers and experts from universities and think tanks. Ambassador Emerson asked the participants in the recent visits about their impressions of both DC and his home state California and talked with them about the main topics covered during their visits.
