The Public Affairs Section (PAS) handles public affairs requests and manages the U.S. government’s official information for the U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou. It is the official voice of the United States in South China. The PAS prepares and distributes press releases and backgrounders on American policy, organizes press conferences and other media events, and provides timely and useful information to local media.
The PAS administers all aspects of “public diplomacy” activities in the consular district for the U.S. government. It disseminates print and electronic media products and carries out cultural and educational exchange programs in Guangdong, Guangxi, Fujian and Hainan to serve U.S. national interest and strengthen and develop U.S. – China relations. The PAS enunciates and explains U.S. policies, while presenting American society in all its complexity so that others can understand the context of U.S. actions. The PAS creates, promotes and coordinates informational, educational and cultural exchange programs which improve relations and increase understanding between the peoples of China and the United States. These activities include the Fulbright and Humphrey Fellowship Programs, the International Visitor Program, the American Speakers Program, the American Studies Program, Small Grants for Human Rights and Democracy, American Embassy TV Broadcast Service and Co-production Project, Digital Video Conferences, and International Partnership Among Museums.
