Addressing the distinguished guests at the event, President of IUBCCI Manuel Oancia outlined the current scene of the “New Economy” that calls for permanent cooperation between the economic and commercial diplomats of various countries, capable of responding to current challenges and transformations of the global economic activities. “At this point, the economic diplomacy is not just the attribute of career diplomats, but it appeals to national expertise in specific areas, from either the public or the private sector. Therefore, the economic and commercial diplomat becomes an interdisciplinary integrator.” said Oancia.

H.E. Sooroojdev Phooker, Ambassador of Mauritius to the United States of America and Mexico congratulated IUBCCI’s leadership for the initiative and as a honorary member emphasized that the goals of the Club will have to go beyond mere commerce and include other important aspects in the economy of nations.

The event was hosted at the historic L. Ron Hubbard House. Sharing what once L. Ron Hubbard said “On the day we can fully trust each other there will be peace on Earth,” Mr. Bill Runyon, Chairman of the L. Ron Hubbard Foundation, explained that peace thus is a condition, a state of trust. “Trust is the ‘invisible hand’ that drives wealth of nations, creates economic stability, and forms relationships whether personal or international,” continued Mr. Runyon.
