Office of Economic Policy Analysis and Public Diplomacy


Strategic Planning, Media Engagement, and Economic Outreach

The Office of Economic Policy Analysis and Public Diplomacy leads the bureau’s strategic planning, support for economic officers’ development, media engagement, and outreach on U.S. economic and business affairs. We explain how smart economic policy expands opportunities for Americans and fosters a more prosperous and secure future. We also lead U.S. policy in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to harmonize best economic practices across nations.
