***Hearing on Africa set for Weds. Oct. 11th***State Dept., USAID Policy on Africa Topic of Congressional Hearing
The impact of possible cuts or proposed changes on U.S. policy and programming in Africa in the FY2018 budget will be the topic of a hearing set for Wednesday which will be held by U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Africa.
“There was some real concern when the intention to make deep cuts to foreign aid and foreign operations was originally made known by the Administration,” said Chairman Smith. “Apparently, Africa was never the main target of such cuts. But what will be the eventual impact of cuts and reorganization that do take place? This hearing is intended to ascertain the impact on U.S. policy and programming in Africa in the FY2018 budget that is being finalized over the next few weeks.”
