Europe and Eurasia
The first Kansas City area immigrants hailed from this region, Europe and Eurasia continues to have deep connections to us.
The Europe and Eurasia region is home to nearly 1 billion individuals and the eight of the top 20 world economies.
The U.S. main foreign policy to this region is to promote international security, NATO, and the coordination with the European Union and other regional organizations, with a focus on democracy, human rights, civil society, economic prosperity, counterterrorism, and nonproliferation.
Kansas City Ties
Over half of Kansas Citians have ties to the Europe and Eurasian region. With the first immigrants to the region having French connections, Kansas City continues to become the home of first- and second-generation individuals from this region.
Ireland, Italy, France, and Spain are among those Europe and Eurasian countries with strong connections to Kansas City and its economy.
