Good morning. It is an honor to be here to celebrate International Women's Day with a group of professionals whose work I respect and admire.

To the women and men of the U.S. Agency for International Development - thank you for all you do to promote the interests of our country while working to build a better world. You have my continued commitment to work in Congress to advance and invest in your mission and your success.

Your Excellencies, Ambassador Roshan, the faculty and students of ATVI, business owners and managers, and international colleagues.  I am honored to be with you here today to launch the first ATVI Job Fair that will help lay the foundation for a vibrant Afghan workforce.  I applaud your efforts and heartily congratulate the graduates.  It is particularly n oteworthy that this building was built 40 years ago with my government’s help, so it’s good to see it is being put to good use again.
