THE TÁNAISTE IS due to begin a three-day trip to the US tomorrow morning as he travels to New York and Washington for UN meetings under Ireland’s capacity as current chair of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Gilmore will meet with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and present him with a special edition stamp by An Post to mark Ireland’s OSCE chairmanship. Ki-Moon is a former South Korean ambassador to the international organisation.

The Tánaiste is due to address the UN Security Council on Thursday.

While he is in the US, Gilmore will meet with Irish community leaders in the US and will participate in President Bill Clinton’s ‘Invest in Ireland’ round-table discussion. Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister Richard Bruton will also attend Clinton’s event.

Gilmore’s trip kicks off tomorrow with a discussion on the Eurozone crisis hosted by the Washington think-tank the Brookings Institute.

While in DC, the Tánaiste will also meet with US government officials to discuss immigration reform and the E3 visa programme, which is currently available to Australian citizens and allows family members to accompany the primary visa holder into the US.
