Washington D.C. is a global capital of power. And embassies are key to that power. With more than 6 million residents, Washington, D.C. metro area, ranks as the 8th largest metropolitan area in the United States. One of the most critical economic forces in the nation’s capital is international business, which, along with the federal government, pumps billions of dollars into the local economy. And a core component of the region’s economy is its international community, whose total economic impact was $41.4 billion, with over $9 billion stemming from employment at international institutions such as

embassies and the World Bank. The total employment effect of the region’s international economy is nearly 280,000 jobs and $14.4 billion in wages. Embassies in Washington are a point of contact with the world. Nations rely on these missions to promote their business and financial interests, so for anyone looking to do business on a global scale, there are few other avenues as profitable or as centrally located as the embassy market, which has come to rely on The Diplomat over the last 25 years as its trusted source of information.
