Thank you very much, Madam Prime Minister, and good afternoon to all of you. I am so very pleased to be here in Moldova, my first time in your beautiful country.  And I'm really pleased that Moldova could be the country that I could come to on my first trip to Eastern Europe as the Administrator of USAID, America's Development Agency.

The Future Technologies Activities will help create pathways for Moldova’s youth, helping link local employers to regional and international businesses associations and investors. It will allow Moldovan companies—who have the ingenuity and ability to compete with anyone—access European and global markets. It will equip young Moldovans with the skills and knowledge they need to take advantage of a growing digital economy. And it will help make the words “Made in Moldova,” a point of pride here at home and a mark of quality around the world.
