The International Reception, a Trilateral Partnership among several nations was held at the Turkish House (which is the Turkish Consulate) and the Turkish Mission in New York City just across from
the United Nations.    

This event was shared between three nations: Turkey, United States and South Korea to straighten their Economic Advancement and Relations. The US was represented by Mark Jaffe the President of the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce. The Turkish American Chamber Industry (TACC) President Mr. Ali Koçak who also organized the event with Mr. Jaffe, who was the host emcee. This included Mr. James Kim, Chairman of the Korean American Chamber of Commerce, and Mr. Kwang S. Kim the President of The Korean American Association of Greater New York were among the group who got together and put this event on cementing good relations among these nations. 

This special event was attended by several very important guests: beginning with Turkey’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Ahmet Yıldız; TACCI President Ali Koçak; Anthony Russo, President of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce and Industry; officials from United States Customs and Border Protection Agency; representatives from the New York Turkish Consulate; Turkish trade and education attachés; military and security attachés; Gülay Aydemir, President of the Federation of Turkish American Associations; members of the Turkish American Steering Committee (TASC); Behram Turan, President of the Turkish Foundation; and TACCI Board members John Driscoll, Memis Yetim, Ziya Erdemir, and Siir Gozde Hobstetter. Special thanks were also given to Carmela Mammas, Director of the New York U.S. Export Assistance Center; Ms. Man-Li Lin, Economic Development Specialist at the Metro New York District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration; and Peter Fehnel, Deputy Director at the New York District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration for their support. 

Mr. Jaffe, President of the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce, witnessed the signing of the memorandum of understanding among the participating chambers of commerce. This agreement emphasized a unified commitment to work together for mutual benefit. Mr. Jaffe spoke about the importance of business relationships in fostering democracy and strengthening international ties, and he also mentioned about the historical relationships between the U.S., Turkey, and Korea. 

Mr. Mark Jaffe acknowledged, the important partnership of Korea and Turkey on June 6th , 80 years after WW11 D day . “ they have stood with us since that time and we appreciate their partnerships and their
Pledge to continue to work for free and fair trade with all democracies

This was another wonderful event, where many people from different organizations and different countries, and different chambers of commerce attended, for instance: Janette Doria, President of the newly organized Greater New York Philippine American Chamber of Commerce where I am on the Board of Advisors.  

Everyone had a pleasant night being friendly and nice, enjoying their good food. I have been going to the Turkish Consulate for many years, besides other Consulates. In fact, I was invited to one of their celebrations of the last day of Ramadan which I enjoyed thoroughly and ate lots of sweets. Thank you once again for your nice invitations. 

Before the Turkish Consulate we had go to the Austrian Consulate first because they were also having an event. We drank some good Austrian Wines and socialized with the other guests. But we could not stay too long so I promised the guests from Vienna, Austria: Daniela Gandorfer, who is their keynote speaker, she is the founder of Logische Phantasie Lab (LoPh+), a Vienna-based organization that explores the intersections of climate change, digital technologies, decentralized justice, and new governance structures. And Ms. Katja Otter who works with ABA (INVEST WORK FILM)  We will be calling on them when we go to Vienna next year to interview them for the Magazine. Thank you also to the lovely Stephanie Martin-Loike, President of the Austrian - American Council East for their friendly reception where everyone was so pleasant and friendly. My long-time friend: Award Winning Opera Singer: Cristina Fontanelli also came - I asked her to stay at the Austrian Consulate. So that we had representation at both places...oh, so many places to go, with so little time. Thank you for your kind invitation.

Other guests were Sue Philipps, Founder of Scenterprises both guest at the Austrian and Turkish Consulate, Guests at the Turkish Consulate yours truly, Janette Doria, Cora Rivera, Founder of Bonatera Realty, Brix Palin Business owner, and Atty. Ureta. The German Baroness Marion Von Buchard could not make it due to feeling under the weather, also Mr. Jude Elie (an incoming President of a country) because he has a long interview with the French TV, and Beverly Olevacce, Fashion Designer was also their. And also Ms. Inga Klimasauskiene the President of the Baltic Chambers in New York. Apologies, this event was a full house, so I do not remember all the names of the other guests at this event. See you all at the next event at our Award Night in September and the fashion shows! Get our contacts below.
