USAID Deputy Administrator Launches Key PFG Initiatives
Deputy Administrator (DA) Donald Steinberg visited the Philippines on May 3-5 to launch key initiatives under the U.S.-Philippines Partnership for Growth (PFG). On May 3, DA Steinberg, together with Mission Director Gloria Steele, launched the Cities Development Initiative in Batangas City. The initiative, which is an integral part of PFG, will unlock and maximize the city’s growth potential through significant collaboration in areas such as education, energy, environment, health systems, and economic growth and investment. On May 5, DA Steinberg signed three agreements with the Philippine government that will support programs in 2012 that promote inclusive growth under PFG, enhance delivery of health services, and improve local governance and stimulate community-driven development in Mindanao.
