Representatives from Bosnia and Herzegovina will explore examples of successful economic development programs in the United States, especially through legislative or executive actions that fostered a positive climate for investment and entrepreneurship. The group will observe how cities and states that have lost factories and manufacturing jobs re-develop their economies by focusing on other sectors.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural and educational ties with the rest of the world.
