On Monday, January 11, the American-Danish Business Council kicked off the new year with an exclusive members-only virtual briefing with Ambassador Rufus Gifford, Deputy Campaign Manager for Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign, and former United States Ambassador to Denmark.
The Danish Ambassador to the US, Lone Wisborg, opened the event by greeting all members welcome to a new year in the ADBC. The Ambassador additionally addressed the recent events that transpired at the US Capitol where riots entered the US Congress building.
Next, Ambassador Rufus Gifford provided his thoughts on the uprisings and went on to give his insights and expectations toward the incoming Biden-administration. Finally, all members had the opportunity to ask questions to Ambassador Rufus Gifford, where NATO, the Arctic, and the bilateral relationship between Europe and the US, amongst many other topics, were discussed.
Thank you to all who attended this briefing. We look forward to many more events in 2021.
