Government agency experts are essential in the field of international exchange; they work in highly influential offices, both domestically and internationally.

In addition to national ministries of education, many government agencies are actively involved in international exchange. For example, the U.S. government runs EducationUSA offices around the world to assist international students seeking to study in the U.S. Many other governments including the UK, Germany, Holland, France, Malaysia, China, and Australia also run programs aimed at recruiting students.
