28/11.2017, Ambassador Melville gave a speech to the international students of Estonian on the importance of the transatlantic trade relationship and opportunities for the U.S. and Estonia to partner together.
After the speech, he responded to students’ questions and later sat down with EBS rector Arno Almann, vice rector Toomas Danneberg, chancellor Mart Habakuk and visiting lecturer Aavo Reinfeldt. Always great to hear about the ways Estonian institutions, like EBS, help deepen and broaden transatlantic business ties!
