Since 1998, over 206 participants from Eurasian countries of the former Soviet Union have visited businesses in the Greater Kansas City to learn the ins-and-outs of the free-market economy. These visitors stay overnight in homes to develop strong links with our community and to reinforce the dynamics of the program. Global Ties KC has hosted 146 professionals from Ukraine, 40 professionals from Russia, and 50 professionals from Azerbaijan under the U.S. Department of State sponsored Community Connections Program.
