Global Ties ABQ partners with the U.S. Department of State to implement the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). Launched in 1940, the #ivlp is a professional exchange program that brings thousands of emerging international leaders to the U.S. each year. Since its inception, over 200,000 up-and-coming leaders from around the world have visited cities across the U.S. including over 500 current or former chiefs of state and heads of government, 10 Nobel laureates, and thousands of private and nonprofit leaders.
This professional exchange program builds global ties by connecting people, cultures, and nations right here in Albuquerque!
We are proud to have the opportunity to showcase Albuquerque to the world!
