WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Friday reported he’s designating University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann to fill in as U.S. diplomat to Germany.
Gutmann has served since 2004 as leader of the Ivy League college in Philadelphia where Biden had set up an international strategy community following his bad habit administration.
She is the main U.S. diplomat pick to a Group of Seven country. Her designation was reported under about fourteen days before German Chancellor Angela Merkel is set to make a last visit to the White House. She is booked to leave office following German parliamentary decisions planned for September.
The White House additionally reported Biden was naming Chantale Wong, who has served a few arrangements in the Bill Clinton and Barack Obama organizations, to fill in as represetative to the Asian Development Bank; Jeffrey Hovenier, a lifelong senior unfamiliar official, to fill in as envoy to Kosovo; and Virginia Palmer, a lifelong senior unfamiliar help, to fill in as minister to Ghana.
