Coordination of United States Government 
                International
                Exchanges and Training Programs

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, and in order to improve the coordination of 
                United States Government International Exchanges and 
                Training Programs, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. There is hereby established within the 
                United States Information Agency a senior-level 
                Interagency Working Group on United States Government-
                Sponsored International Exchanges and Training (``the 
                Working Group''). The purpose of the Working Group is 
                to recommend to the President measures for improving 
                the coordination, efficiency, and effectiveness of 
                United States Government-sponsored international 
                exchanges and training. The Working Group shall 
                establish a clearinghouse to improve data collection 
                and analysis of international exchanges and training.

                Sec. 2. The term ``Government-sponsored international 
                exchanges and training'' shall mean the movement of 
                people between countries to promote the sharing of 
                ideas, to develop skills, and to foster mutual 
                understanding and cooperation, financed wholly or in 
                part, directly or indirectly, with United States 
                Government funds.

                Sec. 3. The Working Group shall consist of the 
                Associate Director for Educational and Cultural Affairs 
                of the United States Information Agency, who shall act 
                as Chair, and a comparable senior representative 
                appointed by the respective Secretary of each of the 
                Departments of State, Defense, Education, and the 
                Attorney General, by the Administrator of the United 
                States Agency for International Development, and by 
                heads of other interested executive departments and 
                agencies. In addition, representatives of the National 
                Security Council and the Director of the Office of 
                Management and Budget shall participate in the Working 
                Group at their discretion. The Working Group shall be 
                supported by an interagency staff office established in 
                the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs of the 
                United States Information Agency.

                Sec. 4. The Working Group shall have the following

                    (b) Promote greater understanding of and 
                cooperation on, among concerned United States 
                Government departments and agencies, common issues and 
                challenges faced in conducting international exchanges 
                and training programs, including through the 
                establishment of a clearinghouse for information on 
                international exchange and training activities in the 
                governmental and nongovernmental sectors;
                    (c) In order to achieve the most efficient and 
                cost-effective use of Federal resources, identify 
                administrative and programmatic duplication and overlap 
                of activities by the various United States Government 
                agencies involved in Government-sponsored international 
                exchange and training programs, and report thereon;

                a report thereon; and
                    (f) Develop strategies for expanding public and 
                private partnerships in, and leveraging private sector 
                support for, United States Government-sponsored 
                international exchange and training activities.

                respective department or agency.

                Sec. 8. If any member of the Working Group disagrees 
                with respect to any matter in any report prepared 
                pursuant to section 4, such member may prepare a 
                statement setting forth the reasons for such 
                disagreement and such statement shall be appended to, 
                and considered a part of, the report.

                Sec. 9. Nothing in this Executive order is intended to 
                alter the authorities and responsibilities of the head 
                of any department or agency.

                    (Presidential Sig.)
