I wanted to provide an update on the leadership of our work in Haiti, on our search-and-rescue efforts, and then introduce the major components of our relief operation. Our disaster assistance response team, led by Tim Callahan, is in the process of doubling in size. We’re bolstering its capabilities to use satellite imagery and improve its planning capacities to make sure that it has the resources and the capacities to really help be strategic and targeted about putting assets and putting commodities in the hands of the nonprofit organizations and other types of entities on the ground that can deliver those services to people and that we can map that in an effective way and make sure we’re covering affected areas in a broad and effective manner.

MR. CROWLEY: Good morning and welcome to the Department of State. As the President said earlier, we are committed to helping the people of Haiti, as well as looking after the welfare of the roughly 40,000 Americans who live and work in Haiti, including those who are part of our U.S. Embassy family in Port-au-Prince.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Good afternoon. (Applause.) It is so wonderful to be here for this occasion. As some of you know, I’ve been in this room before in the last year expressing a certain level of anxiety and frustration. All of that is behind us as we not only celebrate a new year, but have the great honor and privilege of formally swearing in our new Administrator for USAID.

Good morning! Bonjou! Prime Minister Pierre-Louis, Dr. Moise Dr. Lauredan, distinguished colleagues and friends of Haiti, I am honored to be here today and I thank you for the opportunity to join this gathering.

This is a very fitting forum for the subject I want to address today-the critical need to find new ways to work more effectively, together, to bring about lasting change in Haiti.

The United States' support for Afghanistan’s energy sector is evidence of America’s extraordinary commitment to Afghanistan. We have partnered with the Afghan Government to invest in generation, transmission, and distribution systems throughout the country.  We have helped the government negotiate power purchase agreements with its neighbors.  We are working to bring in private sector investment to build a power plant for the Shibirghan gas field.  And we will eventually donate $150 million to refurbish and expand the Kajaki dam complex, which will triple power output for the 1.5 million people in the Hilmand River Valley.
