Deputy Secretary Verma Travels to New Hampshire and Massachusetts

On June 25, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Richard R. Verma will travel to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Boston, Massachusetts.

In Portsmouth, the Deputy Secretary will welcome new U.S. citizens participating in a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services naturalization ceremony at the Department of State’s National Visa Center, which has carried out immigrant visa processing for 30 years. He will also visit the National Passport Center to acknowledge the team’s significant contributions toward the issuance of a record-breaking 24 million passport books and cards last year.

The Deputy Secretary will also participate in a roundtable discussion with local and national elected officials, business leaders, and other dignitaries. They will discuss how the State Department advances a foreign policy that elevates the voice, vision, and role of local government and the private sector to benefit all Americans by addressing climate change, fostering tourism, and promoting safe international travel, academic and cultural exchanges, and international trade and investment.

In Boston, Deputy Secretary Verma will participate in a fireside chat on the State of the State Department and National Security, hosted by WorldBoston at the Boston Public Library. WorldBoston is a non-governmental organization partner in the Global Ties U.S. network that manages the International Visitor Leadership Program, which brings current and emerging foreign leaders to the United States to experience this country firsthand and cultivate relationships.
