Good morning. It's a pleasure to be here today. I've been asked to speak to you about the U.S. Government's work on economic growth, particularly within Southern Africa, which is what I know best. I believe that it's important for you to know what USAID does, how the Agency goes about implementing development assistance programs, and why USAID works the way that it does. Currently, I am the head of USAID's Southern Africa regional economic growth office. This portfolio includes South Africa's economic development bilateral program, SADC (Southern Africa Development Community), wide trade and investment activities, regional agriculture and a stand alone program in Swaziland, where USAID does not have an office presence.
