This spring's 10 visiting Rumsfeld fellows at CACI are quite experienced professionals already and hold important positions in their home countries in public and private spheres, from cotton and hydrocarbon industry to development, government, finance, academia and defense. Now in their early to mid-thirties, all are multi-lingual and many have spent time abroad working and/or studying. With this background, each can be expected to become an influential player not only in his or her home country, but in the international arena as well.
At this Forum the fellows will present their outlook and recommendations on regional collaboration in the areas of trade and transportation.
The Forum is preceded by a reception and refreshments at 5 p.m. The program will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. and will conclude at 7:00 p.m.
