UPCOMING INTERNATIONAL VISITORS


Workforce Development and Empowering Youth: April 21st-24th

New Hampshire will host a group of 10 people coming from Africa to talk about workforce development programs and how to engage youth. Meetings here with various educational institutions, companies, and government programs will give the visitors a wide overview of the workforce development needs of the state.  This is of particular importance to New Hampshire with our aging population and low unemployment rates.  Conversations at these meetings will focus on the skills people learn through these programs, how they benefit the employer and employee, as well as why the government is supportive of these efforts.



Children Protection and Parental Rights in the U.S. Judicial System: April 27th - May 2nd

Coming from Indonesia, this group of 5 women will look at the different programs in the US to help protect children, as well as what the family law system looks like here. Conversations with various government and nonprofit organizations will allow the group the opportunity to learn about child kidnapping, violence reduction, harm reduction, and the power of programs to change lives.  Discussions could also focus on what the child welfare system looks like here in the state.



IPR Enforcement and Protection: May 26th-30th

8 Intellectual Property Rights professionals will come from China to talk about how to protect companies' IPR and why it is so important to do so.  Discussions with educators, lawyers, and companies will focus on why IPR is such an important topic, economically, and how strong protections can lead to more economic growth. They can also talk about how weak protections can lead to a reduction in economic activity.
