Secretary Packer very strongly believes that Government has a responsibility to keep the American people informed. And the way to do that is not just with giving speeches, but to communicate through the media. Through this Website, the US Department of Art & Technology will communicate with Americans and the media to announce all speeches, testimony, briefings, statements, manifestos, and other remarks from the Secretary and other Department Officials as soon as they are available.
