BENS NY Metro welcomed former Colombian Ambassador to the United States, Juan Carlos Pinzon, this week to discuss the important partnership between the United States and Colombia. Members focused on the intersection of our countries’ long-term military relationship and economic investment.

“Our national interests do not stop at the Mexican border. National security and business interests are crucial throughout South America.” – Bruce Mosler, BENS Board Member

The Middle East, South America, and Africa require and deserve our attention as well.” – Gen. Joseph Votel, USA (Ret.), BENS President & CEO
