New USAID Bangladesh Mission Director Derrick S Brown arrived in Dhaka on Saturday to take charge of his new duties.  

Before joining USAID Bangladesh, Brown served as USAID mission director in Angola from 2016 to 2018. He also served as USAID deputy mission director in Indonesia for three years and acting mission director for a year. Prior to that, he served in Botswana, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ghana, the Dominican Republic and Afghanistan, according to a USAID press release.

As a senior Foreign Service officer holding the rank of counsellor, Brown brings to the position more than 28 years of development experience. He was sworn in as USAID mission director on July 9.

The US Government, through USAID, has provided more than $7 billion in development assistance to Bangladesh since 1971. In 2017, USAID provided over $212 million to improve the lives of people in Bangladesh through programs that expand food security and economic opportunity, improve health and education, promote democratic institutions and practices, protect the environment, and increase resiliency to climate change.
