State Department to Host More Than 40 NATO Officials Under Exchange Program

The Department of State will host two batches of NATO officials under an exchange program, opening up an opportunity to exchange knowledge with their American counterparts.

Under the International Visitor Leadership Program, the State Department expects more than 40 current and future leaders to visit the United States to attend the 2024 NATO Washington Summit and celebrate the 75th anniversary of NATO.

The first group coming to the U.S. is composed of 14 NATO Youth Leaders, who will be visiting various U.S. cities, including New York City and Pensacola, Florida, from July 1 to 10. The delegation will tour the U.S. Military Academy West Point, the U.S. Mission to the United Nations and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

More than 30 public officials, academics and security professionals will make up the second group, whose visit will expose them to the history and legacy of the alliance. The delegation will arrive on U.S. soil on Oct. 21 and complete their tour by Nov. 1.

The IVLP is a premier professional exchange program that allows foreign leaders to gain and share their expertise with American professionals. The initiative hosts close to 5,000 visitors under IVLP every year. Staff at U.S. embassies around the world are responsible for handpicking IVLP participants.
