On 1 October 2019 Mr John von Kaufmann, Chargé d'Affaires of the Embassy of Canada in Slovakia visited the University of Economics in Bratislava to give a lecture at the Diplomacy inn Practice Lecture Series. Boris Mattoš, vice-rector for international relations of the EUBA, welcomed the guest at the University. The subject of the meeting was the cooperation between EUBA and universities in Canada.

In his presentation, Chargé d'Affaires highlighted the values underpinning Canada's foreign policy, including freedom, democracy, gender equality and justice. These values lead the country through globalization and form the basis for international agreements such as CETA, which are also important for Canada's and Slovakia's economic relations.

Subsequently, Mr von Kaufmann answered the questions of students who were interested in the problems of global warming, gender equality and Canada's immigration policy.
