BUILDING person to person relationships;
PROMOTING a positive image of the U.S. and understanding of world affairs;
ATTRACTING tourism and business to the Granite State
As the only Granite State member of Global Ties U.S., the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire hosts up-and-coming leaders from around the globe though a U.S. State Department initiative. The visitors are here to learn from local professionals about specific subject matter and take that knowledge back to their home countries.
Whether it's an animator from Uruguay or a CEO from Madagascar, we create a series of programs based each visitor's individual needs with resources from around the state. Visitors also have the opportunity to take part in our home hospitality initiative, thanks to members of the Council - our citizen diplomats - who offer a meal and a conversation in local homes. This program is important in both its social as well as its economic impact: visitors stay in local hotels, shop in local stores, and eat in local restaurants, all while building a positive impression of America.
