U.S. Congress Should Protect Millennium Challenge Corporation

Washington Post: Letters to the Editor: We must protect the Millennium Challenge Corporation
Stahis Panagides, resident country director for the Millennium Challenge Corporation in Cape Verde from 2005 to 2011

“I was saddened to read … about the politicization of the Millennium Challenge Corporation by the Trump administration. … Millennium Challenge Corporation specialists’ support in such areas as financial accountability, monitoring and evaluation, procurement, environmental and social assessment, infrastructure, agriculture, and private sector development was decisive in the success of our assistance. I hope The Post’s exposing the Trump administration interference at the Millennium Challenge Corporation can provoke Congress to protect one of our finest public service agencies” (8/5).
