Associate Professor Brent McKenzie recently met with John Morrison, Canadian Ambassador to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, and his staff to discuss potential research collaboration in the area of Canadian business development. As a result of his visit with Ambassador Morrison, he has been asked to write an article about Canadian food, culture and lifestyle for a Latvian publication, as well as give potential presentations promoting Canadian industry in support of the Canadian Embassy and the Canada Latvia Business Association.
