Assistant Secretary of State Satterfield Travels to India

From August 22-27, 2023, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) Lee Satterfield will travel to India to lead the United States’ delegation to the Group of 20 (G20) Culture Ministerial in Varanasi, India. The Assistant Secretary’s trip comes on the heels of Prime Minister Modi’s official state visit to the United States in June and precedes the G20 Leaders’ Summit which is slated to occur in early September.

In Varanasi, Assistant Secretary Satterfield will address the G20 Culture Ministerial on Saturday, August 26, as well as participate in several bilateral meetings with G20 members and partners, including UNESCO. The Assistant Secretary’s participation underscores the United States’ strong commitment to protecting, preserving, and promoting culture through robust international engagement, and our support for the G20 Culture Working Group.

Prior to the G20 Culture Ministerial, Satterfield will travel to New Delhi, India, to visit an Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) project site, tour the American Center in New Delhi (ACND), and engage with exchange program alumni. She will also meet with government officials and key private-sector stakeholders to discuss a host of shared priorities, including international education, sports diplomacy, cultural heritage, and the creative economy.
