The Subcommittee on International Operations has recently completed 10 days of hearings on issues relating to the reorganization of the USIA, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and other programs encompassed by the term public diplomacy. These hearings were held as part of the Subcommittee’s effort to work jointly with the Executive Branch on public diplomacy reorganization pursuant to an understanding between Chairman Fascell and Secretary Vance.
We want to share with you some general observations which we hope will be useful to you in deciding among various options for reorganization. Our findings are included in the attached memorandum.
We look forward to continuing to work with you to ensure the most efficient and effective use of our public diplomacy resources.
