Connecting Charlotte to the World

The Office of International Relations will connect you to resources to help you engage with the global community. We can help you find opportunities to build your international network, make connections through the area consular corps, expand your business to overseas markets, or connect with immigrant business owners. Our goal is to create international government connections through diplomacy and protocol, Sister Cities, and visiting de​​​legations. We can help you build international business connections through exploring foreign direct Investment in our region and learning about resources to help you export goods and services. We also want to build a more welcoming Charlotte by creating international community connections through sharing an international events bulletin, productive meetings of the Charlotte International Cabinet, and continued immigrant integration with the Welcoming Charlotte Partnership.
