Business and political leaders from 24 countries are in Arizona learning more about the state’s economy.
It’s called the Americas Competitiveness Exchange. Countries from North, Central and South America as well as Europe and Asia will be represented during the week-long tour. It began Sunday with a visit to the Grand Canyon. Tour participants are in the Phoenix-area Monday to tour Arizona State University. From there they will visit the University of Arizona in Tucson on Tuesday and the Yuma Agricultural Center Wednesday before wrapping up the tour Saturday in San Diego, California.
