Chargé d’Affaires ad interim Marc Dillard delivered the keynote address, in which he spoke of the historic importance of the program in sharing knowledge and culture between the two countries. The event was attended by 140 Fulbright participants past and present, Government of Hungary officials, and other European alumni of U.S. government exchange programs. The day featured a series of roundtable discussions highlighting the importance of the transatlantic relationship.
