Community Connections – Belarus
September 3, 2014 - September 21, 2014
The broad public diplomacy goal of the Community Connections program is to contribute to economic and democratic reform while promoting mutual understanding between nations. Through exposure to U.S. society, personal connections with Americans and intensive programming in the U.S., these goals are achieved.
The goal of this three week program is to introduce 10 Belarusian government and business officials to American business culture, policies, programs, and practices in the area of promoting and supporting small and medium sized enterprise development. With an economy still dominated by the state, the Community Connections program will share best practices aimed at growing the private sector.
While in the United States, the group will stay with host individuals/families to experience life within an American home. Each day in Cleveland the group will have professional programming organized by CCWA and will return to the host’s home in the evening (transportation provided).
