The Global Government-to-Government Partnership (G3P)

The Global Government-to-Government Partnership (G3P) is a professional exchange program administered by the U.S. Department of State in cooperation with Meridian International Center. Throughout the course of 3-12 months, G3P includes a professional training program, language courses, and cross-cultural opportunities. Participants develop formal training plans that include specific goals and objectives for their exchange experience in the United States. Once the program is complete the visitors return home to play major roles in the further development of their governments and civil society. The program is currently offered to Japan, though in the past it has included other countries. The current participants include:
