U.S. Translation Company hosts Peruvian ambassador
We at U.S. Translation Company have been busy lately. On January 27 we hosted Carlos Pareja, Ambassador of Peru, for a roundtable in the U.S. Translation Company boardroom. The meeting brought Utah stakeholders within industry, government, and the nonprofit community to discuss Utah-Peru relationships. USTC president and CEO David Utrilla introduced Mr. Pareja to those present, and gave each attendee an opportunity to introduce himself or herself to the others, and to briefly discuss his or her area of interest.
Among those attending were the following (not an exhaustive list):
