Remarks

As neighbors, we all realize that communities across the Caribbean are still coping with the aftermath of Irma and Maria. In the Bahamas, we all know that residents still face a lengthy recovery from Hurricane Dorian. It's reasonable to hope that storms of this intensity never strike again. But it's also reasonable and prudent to plan as though they will. Through these investments, USAID is committed to helping our partners across the Caribbean prepare for the worst and avert disasters before they occur. We are proud to work with all of you. We are impressed with the leadership and many accomplishments. And while we know that challenges loom for all of us ahead, what I have seen today in the conversations that we have had fill me with optimism. I know that we continue to improve our capabilities to learn from the past and to build a brighter future.
