I am extremely pleased to inform you that President Obama has nominated Dr. Rajiv Shah as USAID Administrator. I know that everyone at USAID joins me in welcoming the nomination of Dr. Shah to lead us in carrying out our development and humanitarian mission.
We will be working closely with our colleagues from the White House, the Department of State, and the Congress as we move forward. I want to thank our staff once again for the important work you do each day to carry out our Agency's important mission. I ask for your continued dedication, hard work, and cooperation as we move to the next phase of our transition process.
