I welcome President Trump’s announcement of his intention to nominate Mark Andrew Green as the new Administrator for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Mark brings vast experience to this position, having served as a U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania, a Member of the House of Representatives from Wisconsin, and a board member of the Millennium Challenge Corporation. He currently serves as the president of the International Republican Institute, an organization dedicated to building strong and lasting democracies across the globe. Mark will help us prioritize where America's future development investments will be spent so that we can ensure every tax dollar advances our country's security and prosperity.

USAID plays a vital role in protecting U.S. national security by fostering stability, resolving conflict, responding to humanitarian crises, and ending infectious diseases. He will serve as an outstanding leader for the men and women of USAID, and will work to build a more safe and prosperous global community.
