*As Prepared*

New Delhi - Nearly 80 years ago, Mohandas Gandhi addressed FICCI members at one of the organization's annual meetings.

Established in 1927, FICCI was a young organization then, with nowhere near the massive reach or scale that the organization now enjoys.

But one thing that has stayed the same throughout FICCI's history is its unifying belief. It is a belief that has FICCI such a powerful force for good in the world; a belief that strengthens India's reputation as a rising power.

Good morning and thank you for inviting me to be with you today. It's a great privilege to be here with World Bank Group leadership, senior Colombian government officials, and so many distinguished participants from throughout the region.

I want to congratulate the World Bank Group for the recent launch of the ninth Doing Business report. USAID has had the honor of playing a central role in the Doing Business project from the beginning, and we are proud of the accomplishments that the report has spurred, not just in Latin America, but throughout the 183 countries covered globally.

It's fitting that Bogota is playing host to this event. Colombia has made such impressive progress in recent years that the Doing Business report has recognized the country as a top 10 global reformer.

Good Morning. Thank you Congressman Ritter for inviting me to participate in the conference. I would also like to congratulate Farid and the I Group on the award it received at this conference. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to address the Afghan-American Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber and USAID have shared a common commitment to rebuilding Afghanistan. We have both worked to attract investment, generate employment, and expand market linkages.
