Q & A with Daniel Sepulveda

US Communications Ambassador

Q & A with Daniel Sepulveda

Q: WHAT IS YOUR POSITION?

A: My full title is deputy assistant secretary of state and US coordinator for international communications and information policy. I am the representative of the US for various multi- and bi-lateral communications negotiations with other countries and organisations in areas such as the digital economy and internet governance. The post is authorised by Congress for our secretary of state (John Kerry), and carries the legal rank of ambassador and it’s a political appointment. It does carry some power but I see the same status in my counterparts, such as Roberto Viola, head of DG Connect at the European Commission, with whom we have recently had our annual USEuropean Union information society dialogue.
