Global Economic Cooperation – A Multi-Regional Project

The 'Global Economic Cooperation' International Visitor Leadership Program brought together 20 international participants from 4 continents to examine the current state of international economic cooperation and the integration of emerging markets into the global economic order. They traveled to cities such as New York and Denver to explore how the U.S. and foreign financial systems are linked with existing commodity markets. They also split into three groups, traveling to San Antonio, Phoenix, and Cleveland to review how local efforts to grow the economy have led to reform of financial markets, stimulated local investments, and rejuvenated the U.S. economy post 2007. Finally, in San Diego efforts were made to ascertain the state of U.S. technological innovation and economic activity on the U.S. Mexico border.
