Renewal of the Charter for the Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy

The Department of State has renewed the Charter of the Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy. The Committee serves in a solely advisory capacity concerning major issues and problems in international economic policy. The Committee provides information and advice on the effective integration of economic interests into overall foreign policy and on the Department of State's role in advancing American commercial interests in a competitive global economy. The Committee also appraises the role and limits of international economic institutions and advises on the formulation of U.S. economic policy and positions.

The objective of the Committee is to bring to the Department a source of expertise, knowledge, and insight not available within the Department or elsewhere in the government on these issues. This Committee includes representatives of American organizations and institutions having an interest in international economic policy, including representatives of American business, labor unions, public interest groups, and trade and professional associations. The committee meets at least annually.

For further information, please contact Eliza Koch, Economic Bureau, Office of Economic Policy and Public Diplomacy, U.S. Department of State, at (202) 647-1310 or email at kochek@state.gov.
