The group, hosted by the International House, is here as part of the Open World Program.  The program enables Russian and Eurasian elected officials and emerging civic leaders to observe the American democratic system firsthand. During the meeting, chamber public policy staffers provided the group with an overview of the structure of local government, public policy engagement efforts for our members and general community issues.

"The delegation was very interested in learning about efforts to grow the city and showcase the region," said Lourdes Zapata, director of public policy. "Prior to their visit here, they really knew very little, if anything about Charlotte."
