Through our partnerships with NYC agencies, the United Nations, Missions to the United Nations and Consulates General, our office has continued to strengthen the connections between the City of New York and our diverse diplomatic community. We took some time to reflect on the office's accomplishments over the last year and are pleased to share with you GlobalNYC 2016!
In these pages, you will have the opportunity to review the ways in which our office collaborates with the diplomatic community and our NYC agencies through innovative programming, from Connecting Local to Global and the New Yorkness of the UN, to Global Vision | Urban Action.
In 2016, the inaugural cohort of NYC Junior Ambassadors graduated ready to take on global challenges, we released the UN Impact Report 2016, a cost-benefit analysis of hosting the UN permanent headquarters and larger UN Community in New York City, announced a campaign that showcases how New York City is a #CityofUnitedNations, released the 2016 New York City Guide for the Diplomatic & Consular Corps which provides useful information on accessing a range of City services and addressing City-related issues, and launched an international business website - a one-stop resource for international businesses considering growing their businesses in NYC.
We hope you are inspired enough to share ideas on how our office can collaborate with you in 2017 and beyond.
