    Posted on 9/30/2015 by Ms. Linda Mysliwy Conlin of World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia

    The Baltic Question: Is the Region Secure in its Post Soviet Success... or is Russia Lying in Wait?

    Date: Thurs., Oct. 8, 2015
    Location: Top of the Tower, 1717 Arch Street - 51 East, Philadelphia
    Schedule:
    5:30-6:15 Cocktail reception
    6:15-7:15 Program
    7:15-7:30 Networking
    Through centuries, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have each maintained their own distinct cultural heritage, yet many common interests naturally evolved between the Baltic nations, other former Soviet republics, and the larger European community.
    All sharing borders with Russia, the Baltic nations today must address a concern expressed by Britain's Defence Secretary when he warned that Russian president Putin presents a "clear and present danger" to the Baltic region.
    The Ambassadors of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia to the U.S will join us in Philadelphia to discuss the accomplishments and future of their region, and opportunities for expanding commercial ties with the Greater Philadelphia Region.
