The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has reopened its office in Suriname after a 40-year hiatus. Robert Faucher, the US Ambassador, and Albert Ramdin, the Secretary of State for International Business and International Cooperation (BIBIS), officially launched the facility in the US Embassy building by unveiling a plaque.

Ramdin hailed the creation of a USAID office in Suriname as an indication that the two parties’ relationship will continue to strengthen. “Our country already has a good working relationship with USAID in terms of agriculture, public health, environmental, and investment projects, as well as in the floods.” Organizations and ministries will use the money.

In his speech, Ambassador Faucher emphasized the importance of a USAID office in Suriname. He also looks forward to supporting the embassy in its development work. With the arrival of USAID, programs will be implemented in various areas, notably agricultural development, energy and private sector development.

USAID is an independent agency of the United States federal government primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign and development aid. The organization supports low-income countries in various areas through programs, including programs that focus on the well-being of young people and combating poverty, the Communication Service Suriname reports.
