Field trips to destinations of geographical importance, conferences at focal points of world history, forums about issues with substance and relevant participants are the signature of our event calendar.
The annual goose dinner took place this year on November 15 in the Berlin International Club. Global Bridges had the honor of receiving Baroness Pauline Neville Jones DCMG, member of the British House of Lords, for a second time as the guest speaker for the evening. Her speech addressed the question, “Where is Brexit Britain going?” which was followed by an interactive question round.

On Sunday, November 5, a delegation of North Dakota State Senators and Representatives landed at Berlin Tegel Airport, marking the start of Global Bridge’s second annual North Dakota Study Trip to Germany.
The week commenced with a day of meetings and discussions. To begin, Mr. Hans Ulrich-Klose, former member of the German Bundestag (SPD), discussed general foreign affairs, as well as examined the current political situation in the US and its impact on Germany. Professor Barbara John, Chairman of the Welfare Organization Parität Berlin, followed with an analysis on the immigration and integration of refugees in Germany and in Europe on a wider scale. Before our tour of the Bundestag, Mr. Steffen Bilger MdB (CDU) helped summarize the basic functions and breakdown of the German Bundestag. He also touched on the idea of a “Jamaika Coalition” for the new German government.

Beijing, Shangri-La, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wuzhen, and Hong Kong
October 15 to 28, 2017
This year’s trip to China was overshadowed by the 19th Party Congress of the Chinese Communist Party which took place during our stay. When we were in Beijing, the number of police officers and the amount of neighborhood watches reached an unprecedented number: the nervousness surrounding this big event was tangible. Due to the overlap, we could not visit the CPC Party School, nor could we not go to Tibet as planned.
As always, the trip included political, business and cultural meetings and events.Read more
