Remarks

And we believe, as the lead agency in development, as Americans, that that notion is cooked into our DNA. So, what we believe is, where a country has taken on the tough choices in doing the difficult things that they need to do to become self-reliant and hopefully prosperous, well, we should walk with them along the way. And the Policy Framework is the connective tissue between that notion and the actual work that we do, day in and day out.

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.
