Agency Name: U.S. Mission to China

Description:

The U.S. Government believes that building mutual understanding is a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy abroad. U.S. embassies and consulates abroad seek to tell America’s story through explaining U.S. policies, values, culture, and history. To that end, the U.S. Mission to China (Embassy Beijing and Consulates General Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Wuhan) seeks to support activities that, whether through existing partnerships between eligible U.S. institutions and their Chinese counterparts or through new ties, help explain American culture to the people of China. Such programming will enhance and broaden the cultural and academic outreach of the U.S. Mission in China. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing seeks to ensure that programming is representative of the depth and breadth of U.S. culture, values, polices, and history. The U.S.-China relationship is one of the United States’ most important bilateral relationships. A great deal of work remains to be done in fostering mutual understanding between the peoples of the two nations. Cultural exchanges provide excellent opportunities to help people better understand others’ history, values, and traditions. The aim of this project is to help increase overall understanding of U.S. society and culture by the people of China.
