Farewell Reception in Košice

Sponsored by AmCham member

for H.E. Rodolphe Vallee, U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia

AmCham Slovakia is proud of the fact that we have developed very intensive and productive cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Slovakia during the tenure of H.E. Rodolphe Vallee, who has supported AmCham in many ways. As Mr. Vallee’s posting in Slovakia has come to an end, AmCham Slovakia hosted two farewell receptions with the aim of enabling its member company representatives and special guests to say good bye to the Ambassador and thank him for all his hard work in contributing to the strong U.S.-Slovak economic partnership. The farewell reception in Košice took place on November 29, 2007, in the historical Grand Hall of the Košice City Hall. This event was organized thanks to the generous contribution of U.S. Steel Košice. In Bratislava, a similar event was held on December 4, 2007, in the new National Theatre.

Some 80 representatives of the local governments, business, academic circles and NGOs came to meet with Ambassador Vallee in Košice and more than 130 guests attended the event in Bratislava. Mr. Vallee was presented with several gifts. In his speech the Ambassador mentioned that he would not feel like a stranger in Slovakia any more, because he has the country in his heart now. Among many memories from his posting in Slovakia there was one bright moment in particular Mr. Vallee wanted to mention: his scoring a goal against the Czech Hockey Team during the exhibition game held on the occasion of the grand opening of the Steel Arena in Košice.
