Ten delegates from the Central Asian country of Kazakhstan toured Rose State on March 8 as part of an exchange program to help facilitate small business development in that region.
The Tulsa Global Alliance, a group that promotes “citizen diplomacy” to influence United States foreign relations “one handshake at a time,” hosted the tour.
The delegates met with President Terry Britton and other members of the Rose State College administration, where Dr. Britton briefed them on the college’s efforts in the community to build small businesses.
The group then toured the new Health Sciences Center, posing for photos with the center’s robotic “patients”.
Rose State Business Development Specialist Victoria Armstrong hosted the delegates at the college’s Professional Training Education Center, where officials with the Oklahoma State Department of Commerce and others presented an overview of small business practices in the state.
The delegates ended their visit to the Oklahoma City area with a tour of the Oklahoma Bombing Memorial, the site of the April 19, 1995 domestic terror attack.
