This week, the United States and India are hosting the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in Hyderabad, India.

This year marks the first time GES has taken place in South Asia, which reflects the region's strong entrepreneurial achievements and future, as well as India's emergence as a strategic U.S. partner.

I must also say I am honored to be here in Hyderabad because this is clearly a city on the rise. Hyderabad is on the rise because of good leadership. Hyderabad is on the rise because of all of you. You are the power for the good leadership. As we all know, as India's urban centers continue to grow, providing clean water and sanitation for all residents will become an even more important priority. Today, 540 million people in India lack access to safe, affordable, reliable water. But the Government of India has placed water and sanitation at the center of its national development efforts, taking it on at the national, state, and city levels.

USAID policy states that an unauthorized commitment occurs when a USAID official acts in a way that leads an awardee or potential awardee to believe that USAID has committed to make a specific award; change the amount of an existing award; or revise an existing award budget, program description / statement of work, or any of the terms and conditions of the award; and such official does not have the authority to do so. It is against U.S. Government and USAID policy to enter into an unauthorized commitment.
