Let me begin by thanking the Government of South Africa for hosting this important regional event. I would like to thank Chairperson Ramashala for his stewardship over the last four days.  We are also extremely grateful to the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) for its ongoing leadership and its hospitality towards Member States and implementing partners.

Good morning, Rowena. Thank you very much for inviting me. I’m thrilled to be here speaking with you this morning, and I’m thrilled to be in South Africa. It’s a new region for me but I am proud of the important work we are doing here and proud of the very strong relationship that USAID has with South Africans, whether it’s the government, the private sector or just ordinary people.
