MANKATO, Minn -

Foreign Affairs is a hot topic across the nation, including right here at home, where one policy expert paid a visit to Minnesota State University- Mankato's campus. 

International Affairs Expert Tom Hanson spoke to a crowd of around 150 people, explaining how foreign affairs is changing in the nation. 

"Other countries are rising China, much of Asia, Africa is becoming more important so there's a lot of shifts and we have to know how to adjust to those changes...we're not quite as central as we used to be."

Those in attendance were eager to discuss the nation's place in foreign affairs and how our political climate was impacted. 

Hanson said there is a lot of interest among young people in international careers, and he hopes more young people will attend his seminars.
