Former U.S. Ambassador Headlines First-of-its-Kind Global Citizenship Program in Portugal


Lisbon, Portugal – January 30, 2018: Immersa Global today proudly announced the newest addition to its list of unique personal and professional development programs: “The Ambassador’s Tour of Portugal 2018”. This summer, June 11th to 18th, approximately 15-20 North American professionals will join U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Portugal, Allan J. Katz (ret.) on an innovative “all-access” program that seeks to explore the meaning of global citizenship through the lens of Portugal.

The group will participate in provocative panel discussions involving Portuguese ministers, American diplomats, business and community leaders, scholars, and artists. Ambassador Katz and the distinguished guest speakers will address topics such as:

· “Current and Future Business Opportunities in Portugal for American Citizens”

· “Portugal as the New Culinary Destination: The New Future of Portuguese Food and Wine ”

· “Tapping into Lisbon’s Hot New Start-Up Scene”

·  “Understanding Portuguese Politics and the Role of the European Union”

· “Viewing Health Care Through the Global Lens: Basic Human Right or Commodity”

During the seven-day program, the participants, along with local experts, will also enjoy access to national museums and art galleries, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, private visits to award-winning vineyards, exclusive events with superstar chefs, local celebrities, and more.

“Portugal has everything that Americans look for in Europe. The historical heritage of one of the oldest and most important empires in the western world, fantastic beaches which are still wild and well preserved, great food and wine, a small country that’s easy to get around, an excellent gateway to Europe, and pure people who are easy to communicate with,” stated Ambassador Katz.
