Under the leadership of the Minister-Counselor for Public Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Office is one of the interfaces between the government of the United States of America and the French people. The Cultural Office’s mission is to provide a better understanding of the U.S. culture and society, and to partner with local and national authorities, civil society and the private sector to implement educational, cultural and professional exchanges and thus promote Franco-American dialogue.
