Bureau of International Information Programs
The Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) is the former U.S. Information Agency, which was absorbed by the U.S. Department of State at the end of the Cold War. 
The Bureau is "the principal international strategic communications entity for the foreign affairs community. IIP informs, engages, and influences international audiences about U.S. policy and society to advance America's interests. IIP is a leader in developing and implementing public diplomacy strategies that measurably influence international audiences through quality programs and cutting-edge technologies, and provides localized context for U.S. policies and messages, reaching millions worldwide in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Persian, Russian, and Spanish."
