The Asia-Pacific region is a fundamental partner in U.S. security and trade priorities. Asia represents more than half the world’s population and is the most dynamic and fastest-growing region in the world with a middle class of about a billion people. Robust economic growth, rapid technological change and increasing interconnectivity make Asia a progressively important market for U.S. exports and a key U.S. foreign policy priority. 

Many Asian nations are expected to meet or exceed several of their United Nations Millennium Development Goals by the 2015 target date. However, much remains to be done to unlock equitable economic prosperity and security. USAID’s regional programs work to address key transnational issues that present critical challenges to progress.
