For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. – On July 22, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will release its report, “Twenty Years of U.S. Economic Assistance to Eastern Europe and Eurasia” at an event hosted by the Global Economy and Development Program at the Brookings Institution. The program will also include a discussion on U.S. economic assistance to post-communist Eastern Europe and former Soviet Union countries.
USAID Assistant Administrator for the Bureau for Europe and Eurasia Paige Alexander will deliver introductory remarks followed by a panel discussion with Department of State Special Coordinator for Middle East Transitions Ambassador William Taylor, Booz Allen Hamilton Senior Vice President Donald L. Pressley, and President of the University Research Company Barbara N. Turner. Brookings Senior Fellow George Ingram will moderate the discussion.
The report highlights USAID’s economic aid to Europe and Eurasia, its role in assisting eleven countries to achieve sustainable economic and political transformation, assistance to six western Balkan countries that do not yet meet EU accession criteria to improve their economic and political environments, and, in Eurasia, assisting countries that still are not near minimum transformational measures.
