When measles returned to Venezuela unexpectedly, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) contributed nearly $3.4 million to PAHO, including to vaccinate nine million Venezuelan children against the deadly disease, which saved the lives of people affected by the ongoing, regime-driven political and economic crisis in the country.

Remarks

Through DIV, USAID funds promising ideas, and pilots, and tests their effectiveness, scales up those ideas that show widespread impact and promise. It allows us to take calculated risks, quickly in projects that fail to pan out, and provide additional resources for those that do.

It's how we've institutionalized the experimental approach to development that is at the heart of Dr. Kremer's vision. And it's led to breakthroughs and innovations at a fraction of the usual cost. In fact, over a five-year period, just a few successful investments generated a higher return than USAID’s entire DIV budget. And when taken as a whole, DIV's overall portfolio of investments returned more than $5 for every $1 spent. He continues to play an integral role in the USAID, where he still serves, as you heard, as DIV's scientific director.

The world’s fastest-growing emerging market is its women. Women are also most emerging economies’ biggest underutilized asset. This is why I’m excited to launch the second iteration of YES-Georgia, with an expanded focus on empowering the country’s women.

Remarks

The Memorandum of Understanding that has brought us here together today illustrates the unique ways that democratic countries can help one another while also serving their own important political and economic priorities at home. Simply put, this agreement strengthens the United States and Israel’s commitment to Georgia’s economic prosperity. Our focus on Georgia’s agriculture sector is no accident. Forty percent of Georgians work in agriculture, and the United States and Israel lead the world in agricultural innovation. Each of our countries has integrated our respective agricultural markets into the global supply chain. We are better off for it, and we are eager to help Georgia similarly improve.

USAID programs help countries resist Russia’s manipulation of their information sources, journalism, and overall public discourse by bolstering the capacity of their news outlets to provide professional, trusted coverage… and to strengthen the legal and regulatory operating environment for press freedom.
