The U.S. Missions to Indonesia/ASEAN are comprised of approximately 20 different U.S. Government agencies. The Department of State, the primary presence at the Embassy, is the official foreign relations arm of the President of the United States. The Department is responsible for formulating, implementing, and supporting U.S. foreign policy, assisting U.S. citizens abroad, and managing the human and material resources that provide the platform for U.S. foreign policy. Members of the Department’s Foreign Service and Civil Service are engaged in issues such as conflict resolution, nuclear non-proliferation, human rights and democracy, environmental issues, world trade, public diplomacy, and the promotion of the interests of Americans and their businesses abroad. Department of State employees are also involved in support and management issues and improving logistical systems to get the best possible value for tax dollars of Americans.
