Miami’s growth in urban entrepreneurship has increasingly attracted the attention of leaders from other countries, and last week a delegation from Italy visited South Florida to learn more about developments in the region’s business sector.
The U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program invited four government officials and a journalist to the area. They experienced a short visit to Washington, D.C., but then traveled to Miami, where the Miami Council for International Visitors hosted them.
