This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for eight labor officials and advocates from Ghana, Malaysia, Mexico, People's Republic of China, Republic of Korea, Serbia, South Africa, and Thailand and their U.S. State Dept. liaison, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Labor Relations.
The delegation's program in Detroit, MI will learn about labor unions and the auto industry, university programs on labor education and training, and labor and employment law (union-side and employer-side).
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.
