Remarks

In total, the Fiscal Year 2020 request for USAID, fully and partially-managed accounts, is approximately $19.2 billion. It represents 2.4 billion, or 14 percent, more than requested last year. I think the message of this request is straightforward, as has been alluded to. We attempt to balance fiscal responsibility here at home with our leadership role and national security imperatives on the world stage.
