About the Event

The World Affairs Table events feature discussions on topics pertaining to bilateral relationships between the U.S. and other countries. Each discussion is followed by a culinary tasting event with cuisine and drinks from the country of focus. The World Affairs Table allows audience members to both engage in substantive foreign policy discussions and experience culture and cuisine, all in the span of one evening.

Head Consul of Mexico in Philadelphia, Carlos Obrados-Garrido, will present comments on the deep transformation of Mexico—from government to business to the social programs supporting people. He’ll also comment on the importance of bilateral relations between Mexico and Pennsylvania. The conversation will be facilitated by the Council’s President & CEO, Lauren Swartz.

Attendees will then have the opportunity to engage with Mexican food and a Mezcal tasting at the Bond Collective on the 20th Floor of One Penn Center during a reception (21+) following the discussion. Join the Council for this engaging opportunity to experience Mexico here in Philadelphia!
