New Business Ties to a New Europe
A technician pressed a button and a robotic human foot started walking in front of Ambassador April Foley. This stop at a Cleveland Clinic simulation lab was one of several places the Avon Lake native visited yesterday as part of a three-day trip to Northeast Ohio to promote business and educational exchanges between the U.S. and Hungary.
FOLEY: If you think about the U.S. In the course of the last 15-20 years, there's been a huge effort to take research... into development...into commercialization. All three steps are needed to make sure your health care industry is making the advancements that need to be made. And that transition has not really happened in Hungary.
Today, Ambassador Foley is due to take part in more discussions about improving business contacts between Hungary and the US, finishing off with an address at the Cleveland City Club. Tomorrow night, she will be given an award from the local Hungarian community at the annual Paprika Ball, downtown.
