Ambassador John R. Phillips Remarks for the groundbreaking of the USA Pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015
Milan, July 16, 2014 -- [...] Today’s groundbreaking is the culmination of the first part of the United States’ commitment to Milan Expo 2015. Starting with President Obama’s promise last March, and with the choice of the Friends of the USA Pavilion to oversee our efforts, and now the official handover of this lot to the United States, we are on our way to creating a USA Pavilion that will showcase our country’s innovation and make a profound contribution towards the Expo’s critically important goal of “Feeding the Planet.”
Rome, July 3, 2014 -- Good evening and welcome to Villa Taverna. We are here to celebrate the birth of America 238 years ago on July 4, 1776. On that date, after months of debate in Philadelphia and after a year of fighting with the British, the Continental Congress consisting of 56 colonists representing 13 colonies made the momentous decision to vote to sever the ties with the Crown of England, the Mother Country.
