WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah will travel to Mumbai, India, and Rangoon and Naypyitaw, Burma, from March 5-9, 2013.

Administrator Shah will visit Mumbai, India, from March 5-6 to announce significant new programs and partnerships that will reduce preventable child deaths. While in Mumbai, the Administrator will meet with senior government officials, members of India’s private sector and representatives from civil society, and deliver keynote remarks at the Indian Philanthropy Forum and the Asia Society.

Administrator Shah will make his first ever visit to Burma from March 7-8, where he will further advance the U.S.-Burma Partnership for Democracy, Peace and Prosperity, building upon President Obama’s November 2012 visit to the country.
