WASHINGTON, June 5—ExxonMobil today announced that it will contribute $500,000 to support the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s New Vision of pioneering the first global think tank.

“We are immensely grateful to ExxonMobil for its generous support of and investment in the Endowment’s New Vision. With offices now up and running in China, Russia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States, this financial support is a further endorsement of the mission we are pursuing,” said Jessica T. Mathews, President of the Carnegie Endowment.

“ExxonMobil is proud to support the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace with a major contribution to its New Vision initiative. For years the Endowment has sought greater understanding and cooperation around the world. We hope that our contribution will enable Carnegie to continue and enhance this important work,” said Rex W. Tillerson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Exxon Mobil Corporation. 

Through its New Vision, Carnegie aims to promote sustained, international collaboration by developing improved understanding in the United States of thinking in other countries and regions; developing deeper understanding abroad of U.S. thinking; and developing, on both sides, a critical mass of research-based insights on vital issues.

Carnegie’s leading experts on international affairs, from nonproliferation to democracy promotion, produce first-rate, independent research to help policy makers formulate better courses of action.

Carnegie is the only think tank with a commitment to fluency in relevant languages and to publishing in hard copy and on the web in Russian, Chinese and Arabic, as well as other languages where appropriate.
