This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for 4 economic and social policy makers at the city and regional level, and social entrepreneurs, from Italy exploring Economic Development and Urban Revitalization.
The delegations program from Detroit, MI will examine private and public sector strategies and partnerships that spur economic development in depressed urban areas, policies and incentives for stimulating entrepreneurship, methods for addressing the root socio‑economic causes of violent extremism, ways to leverage public and private partnership, and U.S. efforts to reinvigorate its own economy and create jobs.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
