New Year, New Program Evening

The cocktail evening held on February 6th at the Nautique on Marseille’s Vieux Port brought together almost a hundred participants, members and guests, in the presence of the US Consul-General Simon Hankinson, the British Consul Michèle Solari and Isabelle Hurley of the Department for International Trade at the British Embassy in Paris.

Among the speakers, which included both diplomats, were Didier Parakian, Deputy Mayor of Marseille in charge of economic affairs and the new recently-elected MAABN Co-President Nicholas Hill, who outlined the new directions the organization intended to take over the coming year and the events being planned.

The presentations were followed by a cocktail buffet.
