July 27-30, 2016
This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for a political leader from the Netherlands exploring regional economic development and Detroit's revitalization.
The delegate looks forward to learning about the innovative initiatives that are driving business growth and entrepreneurship in SE Michigan.
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.
