As part of Secretary Clinton's Economic Statecraft agenda, every one of our diplomatic posts around the world and every office at the Department of State has been tasked with ensuring economics is at the center of our foreign policy. For the dedicated staff of the Bureau Economic and Business Affairs, this has always been our mission. And so, I am challenging my colleagues to implement the Secretary's vision through innovative approaches to persisting problems.
Today, I am introducing one small piece of that effort. Through a series of short videos, I will highlight key economic policy issues and the efforts of my Bureau to address them. The first is on our work helping countries address the problem of hunger and limited resources, through agricultural biotechnology. This also ties into the Secretary's goal of helping the private sector embrace development as a business opportunity.
In the coming weeks, I will release videos on topics including Internet Governance, Partnership for Growth, and Corporate Social Responsibility. Check out my facebook page for those releases.
