Bruce J.L. Lowe is a panelist at Global Cleveland’s virtual Sister Cities Conference. The conference kicks off the afternoon of Sept. 29 and runs until Oct. 2. Sister cities benefit each other due to direct contact with local businesses, civic leaders, and educational institutions around the world, thereby increasing cooperation, respect, and prosperity for cities and their constituents.
Representatives from more than 20 sister cities will come together to discuss their partnership goals, successes, and aspirations, and to share ideas and forge connections. Each full day of the conference features topical themes of discussion reinforced by up to eight separate panel discussions.
- Sept. 29: Keynote presentations and immigration proclamations.
- Sept. 30: Municipal/civic leadership day.
- Oct. 1: Education.
- Oct. 2: Business and economic development.
Lowe’s panel kicks off Friday’s business and economic development theme. Lowe and seven executives from international corporations will present, “Economic Development and International Co-Investment in a Time of Pandemic.” Together they will address what can be done to prepare cities for the end of the pandemic and determine how to help them emerge economically stronger by utilizing city-to-city connections.
This online conference is free and open to all community members interested in learning more about Cleveland’s international connections from a ground-level perspective. To learn more and to register, visit here.
