U.S Embassy hosts Sports Diplomacy Program

The Public Affairs Section of the Embassy explains and advocates American policy and works to promote mutual understanding between Guyanese and American societies. The Public Affairs Section acts as a focal point for media, think tanks, and academic and cultural institutions, and advises the Embassy on public diplomacy issues. The Section focuses on conducting meaningful discourse with youth, women, the private sector and civic/opinion leaders on economic opportunities, entrepreneurial ideas, and grass roots responses to social and economic challenges in order to facilitate the development of Guyanese democratic and economic institutions. Our partners are essential in the conduct of public diplomacy, including schools and universities, media outlets, private sector entrepreneurs, program alumni, and NGOs.

The Public Affairs Section also works closely with Guyanese media to provide authoritative information on U.S. government policies. It facilitates media exchanges and visits to the United States and provides information to the media via press conferences, interviews, press releases and other forms of communication. It also administers the Embassy’s public Internet site. The Public Affairs Section also provides Guyanese audiences with an understanding of U.S. foreign policy and its context through seminars, conferences, and American speakers. The Section also offers programs that present a fuller picture of American society, its values, and beliefs. It manages U.S. government-administered professional and educational exchange programs, including the International Visitor Leadership Program and the Youth Ambassadors Program. It also encourages U.S.-Guyanese civil society linkages and promotes American arts and culture in Guyana.
