The coronavirus pandemic has added a new dimension to international competition even as it has underscored global connectivity in a new and challenging way.
Diplomats working around the world to knit together a coordinated response are doing without their customary personal touch and with the added responsibility of shepherding their compatriots through an unprecedented health and economic crisis.
Join Global Atlanta on February 9 for the seventh virtual edition of Consular Conversations, our ongoing series of interviews with consuls general working in the Southeast United States, sponsored by Miller & Martin PLLC. This time, we focus on the Italian Republic with our special guest Cristiano Musillo, the consul general of Italy to the United States in Miami.
Our monthly luncheons may be on indefinite hiatus, but these discussions are as important as ever at a time when cross-border collaboration is at a premium.
- First, the leader of the Atlanta Chapter of the Italy-American Chamber of Commerce, Eugenio Fumo, will offer some opening introductions
- Next, the majority of the talk will be covered by Consul General Cristiano Musillo
- Lastly (before the Q&A session), the new Honorary Consul General of Italy in Atlanta, Filiberto Calascibetta will speak
