Virtual CC Luncheon with Mr. Pekka Haavisto, Finland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs

During our history of 95 years we have certainly hosted plenty of luncheons with some of the key persons in the Finnish politics and business as our Chief Guests but yesterday it was the first ever virtual one and with a very interesting and actual guest, Finland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Pekka Haavisto.

Over 40 participants representing all continents and 36 countries joined the virtual luncheon.

We want to thank Pekka Haavisto for his valuable time and wonderful discussions with over 40 members joining this historical luncheon chaired by Mr. Johan Grotenfelt, Dean of Consular Corps, Hon. Consul of Nicaragua – virtually and obviously all lunch arrangements were done quite individually.

With this event we would wish all our Members and Supporters a sunny and warm summer season. Looking forward to see you joining for a new active fall 2020 season!
