14 Oct 2015: Ambassdors' Lunch: RBC and Americans in Portugal
Following a successful British/USA Ambassadors lunch in 2012 with the then Ambassador's Jill Gallard and Allan Katz the RBC and Americans in Portugal held a similar event in the restaurant Conversas da Gandarinha at the Cascais Cultural Cente with current Ambassadors Kirsty Hayes (UK) and Robert Sherman (USA).
A packed house of nearly 100 people attended the event.
After a superb buffet lunch the discussion got underway. Both Ambassadors introduced themselves and gave a brief talk.
It was followed with questions from the audience which included the UK referendum about the UK remaining in the EU, the policy of both countries in Syria and the migrant problem in Europe.
The event was much enjoyed by all who attended.
