On September 22, 2010, President Barack Obama signed a Presidential Policy Directive on Global
Development. This policy directive marked the first time a U.S. Administration has formally
addressed the significance of international development for U.S. national security and as “a strategic,
economic, and moral imperative for the United States.” It also charges USAID with leading the
formulation of results-oriented country development strategies that will help host countries to be
more stable and prosperous.

During his March 2011 speech in Santiago, Chile, President Obama addressed U.S. foreign policy
towards Latin America. He outlined the three most important issues facing the region where the
United States has a shared responsibility: (1) security (specifically crime and drug trafficking); (2)
economic growth; and (3) the environment (global climate change).
