Foreign Diplomats Visit Texas as Participants in the "Experience America" Program

Under the Department of State’s “Experience America” program, Ambassadors from 40 countries are visiting Texas, January 12-14, touring universities and companies renowned for clean energy development and cutting-edge environmental practices. The Ambassadors will participate in intensive seminars and roundtables with industry leaders from Dallas and Houston.

The “Experience America” program, developed by the Office of the Chief of Protocol’s outreach division, aims to expand diplomatic community exposure to American life beyond traditional Washington circles. Trips highlight communities across the United States with opportunities for foreign diplomats to interact with a broad spectrum of private sector organizations, not-for-profit organizations, academia, and state and local government officials, and gain first-hand exposure to flourishing businesses, innovative technology, experimental healthcare, and cutting-edge environmental practices.
