The US Agency for International Development (USAID) administrator, Mark Green, arrives in Ethiopia on Wednesday for a two-day visit.

The administrator will visit multiple USAID-funded Feed the Future sites that contribute to strengthening community resilience and economic development in Ethiopia.

Green will also visit a programme supported through the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which aims to reduce the economic vulnerability of families affected by HIV/AIDS.

In meetings with senior officials, Green will encourage the Ethiopian government to increase its own investments in humanitarian responses and future economic development.

He will also meet with leaders of the African Union (AU) Commission to underscore USAID’s partnership with the AU on global health, youth empowerment, gender equality, and food security, among other mutual development goals.

While in Addis Ababa, Green will also meet with staff at the US Embassy, including USAID Mission staff.
