Ambassador Chung’s Remarks for MOU Signing Ceremony highlighting U.S. assistance to Sri Lankan Dairy Industry

“And it’s because of today’s challenges that initiatives like Food for Progress and Market-Oriented Dairy Project especially give value to our work:  to do our part to help the people of Sri Lanka, whether schoolchildren or dairy farmers.  I know our colleagues from the International Executive Service Corps (IESC) have been working tirelessly to improve the livelihood of dairy farmers throughout Sri Lanka, and our colleagues from the U.S. Department of Agriculture have been steadfastly supporting this invaluable work.  The project goes beyond simply lending a helping hand; it aims to strengthen Sri Lankan farmers’ own abilities to weather economic challenges, so that when we overcome the current crisis, the country is ready to face the future, stronger than ever.”
