The United States recognizes the ongoing reform efforts to build a modern, peaceful, and democratic country and welcomes the opportunity to deepen engagement with the people of Burma and their government.
In light of the transition underway in Burma, USAID sees a need and an opportunity to engage directly with Burmese organizations and institutions to support political reforms, foster ethnic reconciliation, and strengthen the capacity of reform-minded individuals and institutions. USAID supports inclusive and transparent peace processes that increase access to populations in need and lay the foundation for political resolution to long-standing conflicts and a durable peace. USAID also is committed to enabling recovery from disaster and reducing vulnerability to future hazards.
