Business and Trade Exchanges

These are exchanges focused on business activity and information, and business internships.

The Community Connections Program, sponsored by U.S. Department of State, has brought business consultants, travels agents, computer company managers, and many other types of business managers from Kharkiv to Cincinnati to see how the U.S. system of business operates.

Some examples of Business or Trade Exchanges from over the years:

  • A Cincinnati real estate developer travels to Kharkiv for two days to give two days of seminars on real estate development and asset management.
  • Ten Kharkivites travel to Cincinnati to participate in the Hotel and Restaurant Management program of the U.S. Department of State’s Community Connections program.
  • Ten Community Connections business interns spend a month in Cincinnati studying and visiting American businesses. The interns represented the following businesses/industries: TV journalism, management consulting, public relations, financial management, architecture, educational administration and instruction, securities trading, printing, publishing, paper sales/distribution, and packaging.
