Good Morning.

I’m delighted to see all of you here, coming together to address climate change, one of the most critical challenges facing our planet. You gather in this beautiful town at an auspicious time, as later this year the world’s leaders will gather in Paris to develop a new global strategy to address climate change.

My message today is simple: you play an important role in resolving this global problem. Your engagement spurs action. Your experience creates practical solutions and sound policies. Your leadership builds the political will to make hard decisions. And the United States stands behind your efforts.

Why? To put it simply, climate change doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, young or old. It doesn’t care about race, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, or nationality. It affects every single person on the planet.

Distinguished guests, I’m honored to be here today to speak about the fight against corruption, an issue that is increasingly vital in Central and Eastern Europe. Looking around the room, I see that we are a diverse group – civil society, government officials, journalists, judges, diplomats – and everyone cares deeply about combatting corruption. We also share profound concern about the people and the future of Macedonia, and are committed to working together in the fight against corruption.

On Thursday, May 22, the USAID Roma Education Project (REP), implemented by the Foundation for Open Society-Macedonia, held a close-out ceremony in Skopje.  The 10-year project benefited more than 3,000 Roma students at all levels of education - from pre-school to university -  and significantly improved rates of student enrollment, retention, and graduation.  The event focused on the accomplishments of the project and acknowledged the contributions of partners and stakeholders.  Several speeches and video testimonials spoke of the life-changing impact of the assistance.
