 “I had many opportunities to attend different official events, conferences and round table discussions in Washington DC.  The topics varied, I mostly attended events related to security policy, and discussions in connection with energy policy.  I appreciate that I was able to get first-hand experience about these important issues, and I am certain that I will be able to use this knowledge at my work in Hungary.”
