Each year, the Northern California World Trade Center and Global Ties San Francisco host more than 1,000 international visitors through international exchanges. Many of these visitors are leaders and emerging leaders invited to the United States at the auspices of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. Here are some of the upcoming international delegations:
