ABSTRACT

United States Strategic Plan for International Affairs   [open pdf - 1MB]

This Strategic Plan articulates the fundamental national interests of the United States in terms of long-range goals to create a more secure, prosperous, and democratic world for the American people. The Plan is intended as an overarching framework for the international affairs goals of the executive agencies of the United States Government, under the foreign policy direction of the President and the Secretary of State. The Mission Statement defines core U. S. values and priority interests, establishing strategic goals for national security, economic prosperity, protection of American citizens and border security, law enforcement, democracy, humanitarian assistance, environment, population, and health. The Strategic Overview outlines trends that have a major, global impact on U.S. foreign policy, and identifies the means by which the United States pursues its objectives. The sixteen International Affairs strategic goals are long-term, with timeframes of 5 years-plus. Targets are specific where possible. A set of strategies is presented for achieving each goal, along with assumptions about potentially critical external factors and indicators that can be used to measure progress.
