The State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy (ACIEP) serves the U.S. Government in an advisory capacity by providing a forum for discussion of issues in international economic policy. Committee membership consists of representatives of U.S. organizations and institutions, including from business, organized labor, environment, state and local government, academia, legal consultancies, and non-governmental organizations.

Full ACIEP meetings generally take place three times per year and are open to the public unless indicated otherwise in the Federal Register. Meeting summaries are available upon request. Current subcommittees, which meet more frequently, include economic sanctions, investment policy, and the stakeholder advisory board.

Paul R. Charron, former Chairman of the Board of Campbell Soup Company, is Chairman. Questions about the ACIEP should be directed to Briana Wagner (, the committee’s acting designated federal officer.
