“Support for American Jobs: Requirements for Next-Generation Commercial Diplomacy Programs”

“Support for American Jobs: Requirements for Next-Generation Commercial Diplomacy Programs” is a new report based on business views of U.S. commercial diplomacy programs, prepared by the American Academy of Diplomacy under the direction of the Una Chapman Cox Foundation. It was launched in a public event in cooperation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on May 20, 2016.

This report, drawn from interviews with more than 50 experienced corporate executives and senior executives at the Departments of State and Commerce, identifies requirements to inform the development of these next-generation programs in policy framework, programs and services, professional development, and training and education. Six core recommendations are made for US government action.
