Strengthening Central Banking and National Finance in Iraq

May 12, 2016 - May 18, 2016

The security crisis created by ISIL, the continuing political challenges to maintain a unified Iraq, and the drop in oil prices have all contributed to increased pressure on two vital pillars of the Iraqi economy: the Central Bank of Iraq and the Ministry of Finance. This project will introduce participants to the U.S. Federal Reserve System and provide them with an opportunity to learn U.S. best practices in the public and private sector. The goals of the program are: enhanced capacity of key Iraqi financial agencies, developed awareness of banking and currency legislation, and deepened awareness of private sector models of financing national security projects.

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. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
