“As a Special Assistant at the White House during the 1960s, I know how important it was to President Johnson that an American organization be created that offered technical advice and hands-on practical support to entrepreneurs and small businesses in developing countries, not only to help the growth of prosperity where it was needed most but to win friends around the world at a time of significant international tension.  I congratulate IESC on the significant achievements it has mustered over the last 50 years, particularly the creation of thousands of jobs and raised living standards in local communities across the globe.  I wish IESC every success for the next 50 years.”
