USAID is proud to partner with the countries of Europe and Eurasia. The region as a whole has undergone a historic transformation in a short time. Young countries have overcome tremendous social, political, and economic hurdles to chart a new course for their citizens, guided by free markets and democratic principles.
USAID continues to address those challenges that prevent countries of the region from charting their course toward greater Euro-Atlantic integration. Some of these challenges include pervasive corruption, political stagnation, significant poverty and undeveloped policy and regulatory environments that hold the region back. As a region of increasing economic importance, our development assistance helps support American trade and investment. And as home to several NATO allies, our development ties strengthen critical national security bonds.
