Alternate Title: '2020 Comprehensive Annual Report on Public Diplomacy and International Broadcasting'

From the Executive Summary: "The '2020 Comprehensive Annual Report on Public Diplomacy and International Broadcasting', published each year by the U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy (ACPD) per its congressional mandate, assesses the major public diplomacy (PD) and global media activities conducted by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM). Based on data collected from the State Department's Public Diplomacy bureaus and offices, the Public Affairs Sections at U.S. embassies worldwide, and the USAGM, the report serves as a unique reference document, highlighting public diplomacy strategies and resources used to advance U.S. foreign policy objectives. The report also serves as a platform for innovation, assuring that U.S. government (USG) public diplomacy initiatives remain effective in a consistently competitive global information environment. Overall PD spending in fiscal year (FY) 2019 was $2.21 billion, a $24.9 million increase (1.1 percent) from FY 2018. This figure includes budgets for Diplomatic Programs (DP .7), Educational and Cultural Exchanges (ECE), USAGM, and supplemental funding such as Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) and AEECA (Assistance for Europe, Eurasia, and Central Asia). FY 2019 PD spending constituted just 3.9 percent of the 2019 international affairs budget ($56.48 billion), or 0.17 percent--less than one-fifth of a percent--of federal discretionary spending."
