Media and Cultural Section

The Media and Cultural Section of the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok advises the U.S. Ambassador on issues of public diplomacy, including media relations, and is headed by the Counselor for Public Affairs. The Media and Cultural Section conducts information and cultural programs on behalf of the U.S. Government in Thailand and is undertaken in cooperation with the bureaus supervised by the Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs.

The Media and Cultural Section provides educational and cultural services listed separately on this home page. We work closely with the other elements of the U.S. Mission as well as with many Thai organizations to encourage broader understanding of the United States and its relationship with Thailand. Through seminars, exhibits, speakers and other programs, the Media and Cultural Section encourages the sharing of ideas between Thais and Americans on a wide variety of topics.

General information on public diplomacy and public affairs can be found at the homepage of the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), Bureau of Public Affairs (PA) and Bureau of International Information Programs (R/IIP).
