On Friday, February 28th Warnett Hallen LLP hosted an event to officially announce the induction of partner Manjot Hallen to the position of Honorary Consul for the Republic of Croatia in British Columbia, Alberta and Yukon.
The evening featured canapés, Croatian wine, and speeches by H.E. Ambassador of Croatia Vice Skračić, President of the Croatian Folklore Association Zvonimir Anîcíc, and Manjot Hallen, who thanked the Croatian community for their warm welcome.
“The fact that someone whose name is Manjot and may not look Croatian, on the outside, can take on this role is further symbolic of how Croatia’s reach and influence extends well beyond her borders.”
Mr. Hallen is both humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve Croatia, in his opinion “one of the greatest nations in the world”.
Mr. Hallen promised to serve the community diligently and faithfully. “I will work collaboratively to advance Croatia’s interests and influence throughout the business community and within government in BC, Alberta and Yukon.”
Consular services will be available at the offices of Warnett Hallen at 720 Robson Street, Vancouver, BC by appointment only.
