AHI Hosts Business Network Luncheon in Washington, D.C.

On January 19, 2000 the American Hellenic Institute held a business network luncheon at the Capital Hilton, Washington D.C. The speaker was AHI Member Mr. Aki Bayz, Associate in the International Project Development and Finance Group in the Washington D.C. office of Morrison and Foerster, LLP.

Mr. Bayz is an expert in the field of project finance, foreign investment and international trade matters. He gave a fascinating and detailed overview of the availability of capital resources for international infrastructure projects. Drawing on his experience in representing clients in diverse industries and multifaceted transactions around the world, Mr. Bayz explained how international finance packages are assembled using funds or guarantees from the U.S. and multinational financial institutions.

Mr. Bayz received his B.S. from Georgetown University and his M.Sc from the London Schol of Economics. He received his J.S. cum laude from American University. AHI is very grateful to him for making his expertise in this complex but vital field available to our members.

This event was the first monthly luncheon in 2000 of the AHI business network. These luncheons are designed to promote business associations among AHI members, their guests and other interested participants. The next luncheon will be held on February 17, 2000 when the speaker will be Mr. Mike Galanos, Sports Anchor at CNN/SI, Atlanta.
