Remarks

This week, we affirm our support for the freedoms that enable us to meet openly and to speak openly about the importance of faith in our communities and in our countries. But we go a step further: we invite each other -- no, we challenge each other to take up the mission that the world's great faith traditions call for. To live lives and build communities for believers and nonbelievers alike. To share a tunic with him who has none. USAID will proudly join all of you in that effort. Thank you.

Remarks

Our mission at USAID is to foster the journey to self-reliance. And, we know that private enterprise is the force that gets countries there. In terms of creating those opportunities, sustainable opportunities for those rising young Africans, nothing else comes close. That's why the Trump Administration's Prosper Africa matters. It's not a program; it's a new approach. A new framework. A framework that seeks to liberate and mobilize private enterprise. I believe it gives us an opportunity to double two-way trade and investment in the years ahead. Prosper Africa pulls together, harmonizes, and harnesses our foreign assistance tools in ways that will promote stability and good governance, and an enterprise-friendly, enabling environment. Prosper Africa is different because it is demand-driven and private-sector lead. It aligns the tools of our public sector to leverage the innovation, resources, knowledge, and networks of our private sector.

Remarks at USAID's LGBTI Pride Month Event from Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick

junio 18, 2019
Remarks

From our perspective, even though the WHO has not declared a public health emergency, it is very clear to me that this is a development emergency. As we all know, a deadly virus has struck a region of Africa that was already besieged over the years by a number of failures -- failures in development, a failure of democracy, and a failure of governance. And, this is a combustible, deadly mix. And I think, going forward, a number of things will need to happen.

Remarks

Good afternoon, everyone. And first, please, Mr. Prime Minister, thank you so much for hosting us not just here, but your hospitality while we're here in Somalia. Today, is an important milestone in the partnership between the United States and Somalia. Just hours ago, I formally opened a new USAID Mission here in Mogadishu. This is the first USAID Mission in Somalia in nearly 30 years. This inauguration is not only a symbol of the strengthening ties between our two countries, but it is also a symbol of Somalia's progress.
