I have worked with the Business Council for International Understanding – and its leader Peter Tichansky -- for more than 20 years in my capacity as a Commerce Department Foreign Service Officer, and more recently during my service in Washington. BCIU serves a unique and vital role in serving as a convener and bridge between senior government officials (both U.S. and foreign) and top U.S. business leaders…. The recent Smart Cities Virtual Trade Mission we did with BCIU – drawing over 150 participants – was a superb example of BCIU’s reach into the upper echelons of U.S. companies. Keep it up, BCIU!

The management of the 2018 Philippines Cybersecurity RTM gave insight into how adroit and efficient BCIU is in staging successful Site Visits and Business Briefings for such a diverse delegation composition as this one was. Scheduling and logistics allowed for maximum relationship building and information sharing while avoiding message redundancy and mission ‘burn-out’.
