WILMINGTON, NC, April 01, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Did you know there are consuls from all around the world representing their countries in all 50 US states? It’s true. However, not many people know about the incredibly important functions they perform. Regarding both career consuls and honorary consuls, it can be confusing for business, civic, and educational leaders to understand what they do, especially when most of us have never learned about consuls before. The Foreign Consuls Among Us: Local Bridges to Globalism, by bestselling author Cami Green Hofstadter, is an easy-to-read reference book that will make everything crystal clear. Now in expanded digital form, this book is easily searchable and belongs in the hands of every internationalist and business, civic or educational leader looking to partner with local consuls. Readers will be able to unlock a whole new world of possibilities with this essential guide.

Businesses who hope to expand globally will especially benefit from learning how to work with foreign consuls. Learning how to do business internationally and understanding international business etiquette is essential for any business looking to succeed in the global marketplace. With the help of consuls and other resources, businesses can learn to navigate the complex cultural differences that exist in the global marketplace and avoid costly mistakes that can damage relationships and reputations. In many cultures, business is conducted on the basis of personal relationships and trust. Understanding the customs and traditions of foreign countries can help businesses show respect for local customs and build trust with local partners. This can lead to stronger relationships, better communication, and ultimately, better results.

The ebook version of The Foreign Consuls Among Us: Local Bridges to Globalism will be available at no charge at Amazon April 4 through April 6, 2023.

Bestselling author Cami Green Hofstadter, a Swedish-speaking native of Finland, received her first law degree at the University of Helsinki followed by a Master’s degree at the University of Miami School of Law, and a PhD in Ed Leadership. She also has certificates in Diplomatic Law from the Hague Academy of International Law, the Netherlands, and in International Organizations from the University of Geneva, Switzerland.

Retired from an academic career at two universities and having served as a long-time Honorary Consul of Finland and Secretary of the Consular Corps of Miami (where she remains an Associate Member), she now engages full-time in her passion of being a writer and teacher at many lifelong learning centers and JCCs around the country.

Among her many publications was a long-standing monthly column on consular affairs in Miami Today, and other pieces relating to consular law and status, for international business, and educational leaders.

“When the prestigious Kirkus Reviews gave the 1st edition of Foreign Consuls Among Us recommended status I knew I had accomplished my goal of fulfilling a real need for both consuls and business leaders,” Hofstadter said. “It’s been said that diplomacy should be shared with consuls but, as I found early in my own consular activities, local populations around the US usually lack an education in the nature of the functions of the foreign consuls in their communities. I wrote this easy-to-understand book for them, rather than single-mindedly for academics only.”

“A named consular corps can be an important vehicle for informing international business leaders about the presence of sometimes a very large group of local consuls and the initial resources they can bring to the investigation of doing business abroad.”

“Since embassies are located in a nation’s capital, and not in individual provinces or states where consuls function, the first step in international exchanges like people-to-people and sister city programs is usually most effective when started at the local consulate level.”

“Among the most popular features of my book is the question- and answer-section which is based on real live scenarios with many additional ones in my blog”

“As a lifelong internationalist, and former educator (associated with three local universities), I find it particularly ironic that the business of international education — and yes, universities are a serious part of the global economy — commonly ignores the ‘consular component’ of their teaching objectives. For now, self-learning through my book is the answer to this dilemma.”

The Foreign Consuls Among Us has received glowing reviews on Amazon. A former ambassador stated, “This is the book with the answers! “. A business owner said, ” I’ll no longer be nervous about approaching a foreign consul and I now understand the expectations on both sides. Wish I had had this book years ago!” Another reader wrote, “Dr. Hofstadter’s writing is clear, concise and entertaining. This book belongs in every corporate, government and educational institution’s library.”

The Foreign Consuls Among Us: Local Bridges to Globalism, ebook version, will be available at no charge from April 4 through April 6, 2023 at Amazon.
