International Visitor Dinner Hosting – U.S. Trade Policy
Visitors representing 20 countries from Armenia to Rwanda will be in Cleveland to examine how legacy manufacturing cities are restructuring and promoting trade in a globalized 21st century economy.
International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)
Each year, over 300 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.
