What Kansas City Global Resource is most useful to your organization?

Home Global Business

Global Business



As technology in fields such as communication, transport, and finance has continued to develop, the nature of international relations, business, and even personal interactions has changed at an alarming rate.  In recent years some experts have observed that the traditional limitations of geography, national boundaries, and even currency have begun to erode.  Indeed, some divisions and communities have disappeared entirely leaving in their wake what some would call a "World Community" or "Global Village".

Kansas City has an extraordinarily well rounded global community that draws support from all levels of the local infrastructure.  However, perhaps the most important and evident piece of that global community is international business.  In recent years Kansas City has become increasingly well-known for its connections with the international business world. Both American businesses operating overseas and International businesses operating in the United States have come to see Kansas City and, indeed, its vibrant international community as an excellent resource.

Kansas City Global encourages residents and visitors alike to take advantage of all of the opportunities that the Global Business Community in Kansas City provides.  We also have resources available for those in the business community who would like more information about all that the Greater Kansas City Area has to offer.
