The United States Agency for International Development is the part of the United States federal government that is primarily responsible for providing foreign aid and development assistance. We work very closely with the Government of India to reach our common development goals.

USAID has a long and successful partnership with the Government of India, and it all started with farmers. More than 70 years ago, our work together started with emergency food aid when drought decimated farmers' crops and threatened India's people with famine.

At USAID, our health portfolio is one of our largest investment areas, focusing particularly on maternal and child health, family planning, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and antimicrobial resistance. However, we understand that our resources are just a fraction of the investment needed to achieve our development goals. As a result, our approach hinges on strengthening existing systems; forging shared-value alliances and partnerships; and demonstrating models that can be scaled up by others.

As part of USAID’s continued commitment to support Philippine aspirations for inclusive growth, last year, we launched a new partnership with PBEd to improve youth access to training and employment opportunities, and engage the private sector in workforce development. Our partnership is expected to create over 4,000 work-based training positions for youth, and these positions will be complemented with classroom-based skills training and competency certification.

Building upon our years of partnership with the Filipino people, USAID continues to support Philippine aspirations for inclusive growth. In line with this, we strategically build upon Filipino talent and expand opportunities for science, technology and innovation to advance, broaden and sustain growth.

Europe and Eurasia is at a critical time in its history. It has been 30 years since the Wall fell. Many of the Eastern Block and former Soviet republics are still deciding which paths to take.  These decisions will have consequences for global security for at least the next generation.  Energy plays an incredibly important part of that decision.  Our work shows that energy independence allows nations to make clear choices which enable society to live free and flourish.

People with disabilities need not be the most vulnerable members of society; the good work of physical rehabilitation can change their lives, making them productive members of their communities. USAID is proud of its support to civil society organizations in this sector.

The United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, recognizes rule of law as one of the key elements of the country’s pursuit of inclusive and resilient economic growth. In light of this, USAID and the Supreme Court of the Philippines launched the JUSTICE project in 2012 to improve judicial efficiency and integrity.

In the past two weeks, I had the pleasure of visiting a number of U.S. government-supported sites in Benguet and Iloilo City and witnessed firsthand the admirable work of our Philippines partners — health workers, disaster volunteers, fisherfolk leaders, and others — who are delivering basic services reach the most needy. Today, I am deeply honored to be among Philippine government leaders who are so well-positioned to ensure that needed funds continue to flow to support government initiatives that will enable all Filipinos to map a better future for themselves.

The United States government works closely with the Philippine government and our local partners in attaining our shared goal for advancing sustainable fisheries. We recognize that illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing practices put law-abiding fishers and seafood producers at a disadvantage. They also threaten global food security.

As we know, wildlife crime is pushing some of the world’s most iconic species toward extinction while driving a lucrative criminal industry that fuels instability in countries around the world. Wildlife crime is a critical threat to economic development. It undermines regional security, threatens legitimate economies, and undercuts our efforts to end extreme poverty. In Namibia, wildlife is an important cultural and economic asset, contributing significantly to the tourism sector and sustaining the livelihoods of millions of people.
