Deputy Secretary to Attend Swearing in of USAID Mission Director for Sudan

Deputy Secretary Robert B. Zoellick will make remarks at the swearing in of Katherine J. Almquist as USAIDís new Mission Director for Sudan on April 20 at 4:00 pm. The ceremony will take place at the U.S. Agency for International Developmentís headquarters in the Ronald Reagan Building, 1300 Pennsylvania, 6th floor conference room and is open to the press.

USAID Administrator Randall L. Tobias will swear in Almquist who will serve as the head of the USAID Mission in Sudan, which the Agency is re-establishing after a 15-year closure. Deputy Secretary Zoellick recently designated Almquist to serve as the U.S. Representative to Sudanís Assessment and Evaluation Commission. In this capacity, she represents the views of the U.S. Government on the commission mandated to oversee implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Government of Sudan and the Sudan Peopleís Liberation Movement, which ended Africaís longest-running civil war in 2005.
