New Foreign Affairs Policy Board To Focus On Broad Strategy

By  

Next week, Monday, December 19th, Secretary Clinton hosts the first meeting of the newly created Foreign Affairs Policy Board.

The new Board, composed of 25 members, is to meet at the Department of State periodically to discuss issues of high priority for the Secretary of State and the Department of State.

The main focus for the Board is broad strategy. It is expected to provide the Secretary and senior Department officials with insights, perspectives, and ideas. Secretary Clinton will meet with the Board several times during her tenure.

The Foreign Affairs Policy Board members, selected by Secretary Clinton, are distinguished, diverse, and bipartisan, with "a wide range of expertise and background, including past government service, academia, politics, development, and business," according to a State Department release.
