Today, the United States Senate confirmed Mark Andrew Green to be the eighteenth Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). With Mark's unwavering commitment to strengthening USAID's effectiveness and efficiency, the Agency will continue to forge new partnerships that strengthen its role as the global face of American generosity and an asset to national security.

Mark brings a wealth of experience to this position, having previously served as U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania, a Member of the House of Representatives from Wisconsin, and a Member of the Board of Directors of the Millennium Challenge Corporation. Most recently, he served as President of the International Republican Institute.

Mark will help us prioritize America's future development investments to ensure every tax dollar advances our country's security and prosperity and brings us closer to the day when foreign assistance is no longer needed.

I am delighted to welcome Mark to USAID, and look forward to the Agency's achievements under his skilled leadership.
