message from mayor bottoms
"As the 60th mayor of the City Atlanta, I am proud to welcome you to the Office of International Affairs official website. The City of Atlanta is proud to be home to a foreign-born population of more than 825,000 whose presence enriches the cultural and economic fabric of our community. The cultural and economic contributions of these communities strengthen our resiliency and increase the overall economic growth and success of all Atlantans.
Atlanta is also home to the busiest and most efficient airport in the world which welcomes 275,000 passengers daily, 2,600 foreign-owned enterprises, a $15 billion tourism and hospitality industry, and a dynamic community of international representatives and organizations, including more than 70 consular and trade offices, more than 30 bi-national chambers of commerce, and 17 sister city relationships. As the cradle of the Civil Rights movement and the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Atlanta treasures its diversity and leads by example to promote inclusion and civic engagement at home and around the world. Through key partnerships and programs Office of International Affairs serves to expand this global connectivity and continue to elevate the City's international profile.
Whether you are a visiting delegation, a business-owner seeking international expansion, or want to stay up to date with the activities of the Mayor's Office of International Affairs, I invite you to use this website as your source for information on the City of Atlanta's international affairs."
