Secretary Pompeo, Minister Kaag to Attend Road to GES Heartland

US Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo will deliver the March 18 keynote address for the State Department’s Road to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit Heartland Event in Overland Park, Kansas, which will take place on March 18 and 19. The Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Sigrid Kaag, who is to chair GES 2019 in the Netherlands in June, will speak at the Road to GES Heartland event as well.

The Road to GES Heartland Event will bring together hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, and public and private sector leaders who are building innovated solutions to agriculture, health, and connectivity. Secretary Pompeo will also preview his participation in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in The Hague, the Netherlands, which will take place on June 4 and 5.

As announced by the State Department on February 7, “both events promote growth and prosperity in the United States and the world. The Heartland Event will show how American economic strength can shape world affairs to our nation’s benefit. Road to GES Heartland will also include a delegation of entrepreneurs from the Netherlands, a strong and longstanding partner of the United States.”
