As with all Institute programs, these results-oriented training programs were key expressions of our core capability, which is designing and delivering programs that meet the needs of particular clients, either individually or in small groups.ILI's AID programs bring together business, professional and government leaders from the transition economies of East Central Europe with their American counterparts.
These programs were designed to help leaders develop closer economic and social ties with the United States. In addition to giving participants the needed tools for success in their home organizations, these programs stress the importance of building free, open market economies in the context of democratic political systems. These programs were funded entirely by US AID; trainees were selected for participation based on their ability to make positive economic, political or social change in their country. Typically, these participants possessed technical or academic skills, and leadership qualities, were committed to development, and were striving to become effective leaders in managing change.
