Consultants for Global Programs

We specialize in personalized, affordable educational programs and offer unique consulting services to governments, educational institutions, and businesses!

Welcome to Consultants for Global Programs
CGP is the educational group that brings about unique and tailor-made programs in selected countries where we have special interests.  We primarily work in China and India, as well as in the United States. We have also worked in Cyprus, South Africa, Mexico and Spain. As a growing nonprofit organization with dozens of contacts in these countries, we have the unique ability to tailor programs to suit participants' needs and to provide personal, one-on-one service.  

Some programs abroad are on a cost-plus basis for most, making the packages extremely reasonable and competitive.  Almost all of our programs provide housing, meals, tuition for students, materials, international roundtrip airfare, local travel in host country, university fees, and limited medical repatriation insurance as part of the total program fee.  Exceptions are noted on program web pages and the schedule of programs on this website.  

In addition, CGP offers international seminars and workshops regarding China and India in local US communities. These programs are related to trade, commerce, business, education, leadership, environmental studies.

Our Recent 2013 Program included hosting a Delegation from China…………….
January 3-10, 2013 Consultants for Global Programs hosted a visiting delegation from Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.  The delegation represented:  (1) China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Guangxi Committee (CCPIT), (2) China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit Secretariat  (CABIS), and the (3) Guangxi Chamber of Commerce.

The purpose for their visit was to explore trade, commerce and tourism opportunities between the two regions.

The delegation members were:  

1. Ye Yan, Section Chief--and leader of the group
2.  Li Xiaoli, Asst. Section Chief
3. Zhang Yuye, Asst. Section Chief
4. Huang Hui, Project Assistant
5. Qin Cong, Project Assistant

Dr. Larry Kavich, the CEO of Consultants for Global Programs (CGP) was one of the first western academics in China in the early 1980s.  His interpreter was Mr. Huang Yong Qiang who now is a director for CABIS.  The two have remained very close for many years and through this connection the delegation visit was arranged.
