Partnerships and audiences continued to expand, providing another testament to the increasing worldwide interest in PD. The 2016-17 Annual Report outlines collaborations with Portland Communications on the third annual publication of the influential Soft Power 30 report and partnerships with CSIS and Oxford University.
