Advancing the Global Digital Economy

The International Communication and Information Policy (CIP) group is led by the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cyber and International Communications and Information Policy.


The Division of International Communications and Information Policy (EB/CIP) is the U.S. government lead on international information and communication technology (ICT) policy. We work with government, private industry and other stakeholders, and advocate for business climates, policies and regulations overseas that advance U.S. values, interests, economic growth, and job creation.

EB/CIP is divided into three offices: Bilateral and Regional Affairs, Multilateral Affairs, and Technology and Security Policy. These offices lead U.S. government delegations to international meetings, work with Advisory Committees, coordinate Executive Branch views on related policies, solicit input from private sector and consumer organizations, and closely work with U.S. embassies and other missions around the world to advocate U.S. interests.
