Public Affairs

The Media Affairs Office

The Media Affairs Office is the Embassy’s primary point of contact with the media.  The Press Attaché uses media products, services, personal contact, and other tools to inform the Senegalese public about the U.S.  Each day, the Public Affairs Office distributes news stories, speeches, and policy statements to Senegalese journalists and officials.  In addition to regularly providing Senegalese radio and television with audio-visual materials, we also distribute a selection of pamphlets and other publications on U.S. interests, policy and activities.  The Information Office also provides opportunities for Senegalese journalists to pose questions directly to American experts in real time through  our digital video conferencing (DVC) facilities.

Press inquiries to any section of the Embassy should be directed in the first instance to the Press Officer. For those interested in more detailed information about US Foreign Policy, please visit our International Information Office website and/or the US State Department website.  These websites provide a wealth of information on US policies, quotes from US government officials, news on upcoming events as well as electronic dossiers on important themes.
