As part of WKYC's involvement in the "Our World Today" project, we welcomed another visiting Ambassador. Today, His Excellency Roman Kirn, Ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia to the United States, joined a group of local business executives to discuss economic growth and possible partnerships with Northeast Ohio and Slovenia.
"Our World Today" also works with local schools including Villa Angela-St. Joseph in a global education initiative.
Northeast Ohio is home to more Slovenians than anywhere outside Slovenia itself. Northeast Ohio also has over 180 countries represented, a greater diversity than anywhere other than New York.
WKYC has welcomed dozens of Ambassadors over the past years from countries including the Philippines, Ireland, Columbia, Hungary, Slovakia, and Guatemala. We also hosted the President of Romania. Upcoming visitors will include the Ambassadors from Lebanon and Ethiopia.
