Now in Bangladesh, I am excited by the prospects of advancing USAID’s long-standing and productive relationship with the Government of Bangladesh and all Bangladeshis to achieve the impressive goal of graduating to a middle income country in the near future.

Yet, with nearly one in three people living in poverty, the country faces immense development challenges and faces an important crossroads in its democratic evolution. USAID is helping Bangladesh address development challenges that threaten to undermine its economic potential and stability.
