Advancing Economic Statecraft: One Video at a Time

March 21, 2012

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.

By the way, I hear all the country is too risky a way to revive personally think.

Some countries, the current situation does not worsen in the setting direction, and the recovery of other countries, some countries, affecting a good direction, I think it is better that I should establish a policy.

Already established policies in place, but I want to get everything effort, about the possibility of losing everything, spoke.

Read my opinion, to throw in the trash, your freedom, I think.

Benelux 3 station in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, the new alliance system by inducing the connection (with the exception of Germany, Germany ...) to enter into a new form of alliance Hanja - if, in these countries, the economic alliance If successful (EU rather than withdrawal of a temporary, emergency measures for economic recovery, I think.)

Europe's economic recovery will think that's a good starting point.

The characteristics of these countries, the economic situation even a little crush, back-country deulyigo normal economic activity, a small amount of high-end products are supplied to the middle class or upper class economic system keep the system you think is suitable.

Incurring economic difficulty the country's situation, I do not think there is never a poor country.

Roll-Model the potential to be good in Europe and hope to present to potential suspect.

Are you willing to try?
