Madam President, on behalf of the Atlantic Council and its entire leadership team and board of directors, I would like to thank you for hosting the Dubrovnik Forum and leading the Three Seas Initiative. I applaud the leadership you have shown in organizing this summit in Dubrovnik for the second straight year. Madam President, you have been a privileged and important partner of the Atlantic Council from your time as Croatia’s Ambassador to Washington, later as NATO Assistant Secretary General, and now as President of Croatia. We are grateful for your leadership. I would also like to thank His Excellency President Andrej Duda. Poland’s leadership in the Three Seas Initiative is essential. The Atlantic Council is eager to work with your administration to make the annual Wroclaw Global Forum an important follow on to this summit.
