Kleiner, Acting Deputy Chief of Mission, and other representatives of the U.S. Embassy at the headquarters of the U.S. Mission in Romania.

The entire group of U.S. Fulbright grantees participated in the reception organized at Casa Oamenilor de Stiinta, where they had a chance to actively interact with Romanian alumni and friends of the program.

On the second day of the event, the entire group of U.S. Fulbrighters and members of the staff went on a visit to Peles Castle and George Enescu Memorial House on the Prahova Valley.
