Last week, Ambassador Victoria Kennedy hosted the annual Independence Day reception at her residence.

“Thank you to all our dear friends and partners for joining us to celebrate our Independence Day. We are immensely grateful for your outstanding contributions and unwavering dedication to our bilateral relationship.
On this Independence Day, just as in 1776, we hold these truths to be self-evident – we all are created equal with the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These shared values form the strong bilateral ties that bind the United States of America and Austria. Happy 4th of July!”
Ambassador Kennedy
