Visakhapatnam plays significant role in U.S.-India Relations, U.S. Diplomat

Andhra Pradesh plays a significant role in the strategic partnership between the United States and India, said Frankie Sturm, Public Diplomacy Officer, U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad.

Mr Sturm is on a three-day visit to Visakhapatnam. Speaking at an interactive session with journalism students from different colleges at the American Corner on the premises of Andhra University, he explained how the U.S.-India strategic partnership is founded on shared values, a commitment to democracy, and the importance of fostering a free and open Indo-Pacific.

From activities as diverse as U.S.-India naval exercises and U.S.-supported English language programs, Visakhapatnam is playing a key role in promoting stronger relations between India and the United States. He also discussed how the U.S. Consulate worked with Andhra University to open the American Corner, which gives the Consulate the opportunity to organize cultural, educational, and exchange programs in Visakhapatnam.

Mr Sturm answered students’ questions about the news media in the United States and he described how students can reach out to the U.S.-India Educational Foundation in Hyderabad (https://www.usief.org.in/Hyderabad.aspx) to learn more about studying in the United States. He also encouraged students to combat disinformation by consuming a variety of media sources and he distributed certificates among students who attended a workshop on “Countering Disinformation” in August.

Prof DVR Murthy, Head of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, Andhra University, thanked Mr Sturm for his visit and urged students to make use of the facilities at the American Corner, which will be helpful for them in shaping their careers. Mr. Sturm also visited the Department of Physics and Department of Journalism where Prof. Challa Ramakrishna, Chairman, Board of Studies, and Dr. Krishnaveer Abhishek, Linguistic Faculty, explained to him about the historical significance of the two departments.
