This summer, the Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs hosted the inaugural Economic Diplomacy in Action Photo Contest. Posts from around the world submitted photos of U.S. diplomats working hard for the American people by advancing U.S. economic interests globally! These visuals showcase U.S. diplomats actively engaging with local government officials, business leaders, and communities – true economic diplomacy in action!  In September of 2019, these top ten action shots were selected.

Congratulations to U.S. Embassies: Lome (Togo), Zagreb (Croatia), Kampala (Uganda), Lisbon (Portugal), La Paz (Bolivia), London (United Kingdom), Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia), Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of the Congo), and Panama City (Panama) for your winning submissions!
