Former U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania Confirmed as USAID Administrator

On August 3, 2017, the United States Senate confirmed Ambassador Mark Andrew Green as Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). As USAID Administrator, Ambassador Green will oversee the U.S. Government’s lead development agency, which operates in over 100 countries to end extreme poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential.

During his tenure as U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania from 2007 to 2009, Ambassador Green facilitated bilateral cooperation on some of the world’s largest U.S.-led development programs.
