In Washington and around the world, Department of State and USAID experts work closely with dedicated colleagues from many U.S. Government agencies to vigorously and comprehensively pursue U.S. diplomatic, development, and defense goals. International organizations such as the United Nations (UN) and the Millennium Challenge Corporation are crucial partners in any efforts to address these challenges, and the United States works closely with these organizations to advance U.S. national interests. This section summarizes by region the key issues facing the United States as it engages in bilateral, regional, and multilateral partnerships to advance U.S. foreign policy and international development goals. An overview of U.S. foreign policy achievements by region can be found in the Message from the Secretary of this report.
