America in 3D Comes to Cebu City

The U.S. Embassy is bringing America in 3D to Cebu City from September 16-18. This program will highlight American culture, values, and services in the Philippines.  U.S. Ambassador Harry K. Thomas, Jr., will be opening the three-day extravaganza at SM City Cebu’s North Wing Atrium at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, September 16.

Residents of Cebu province and its neighboring areas are invited to participate in America in 3D by coming to SM City’s North Wing Atrium anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. from Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18.  All events are free and fun for the entire family.  Programs include a packed lineup of musical and dance performances of American genres, including blues, country music, hip-hop, Broadway, and today’s best hits.  There will be free samplings of American food, information about applying for visas and how to study in the United States, and representatives of two American companies—Accenture and Lexmark—will accept resumes for careers in their companies.

America in 3D brings the Embassy directly to the community.  This is a unique opportunity for Cebuanos to meet many representatives of various Embassy sections, including the Visa Section, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Commercial Service, the United States Agency for International Development, the Foreign Agricultural Service, Peace Corps, and the Philippine-American Educational Foundation (Fulbright Commission).  Ambassador Thomas and the other Embassy representatives will be available to answer your questions throughout the program.

America in 3D is a nationwide initiative that takes the Embassy on the road throughout the Philippines in order to deepen the relationship between Americans and Filipinos.  A personal initiative of Ambassador Thomas, this is the Embassy’s most significant outreach initiative.  The program took place in Quezon City in March 2011 and in Baguio in July 2011.  This is the third running of this program.

The U.S. Embassy in Manila is presenting America in 3D jointly with its partners: Accenture, Lexmark, McDonald's, SM City Cebu, Radisson Blu Hotel, and El Cielito Hotels.
