USAID's strategy to promote economic growth and reduce poverty encourages the integration of developing countries into the global economy.  USAID pursues economic growth activities as a means to accomplish the objective of accelerating broadly shared growth and increasing incomes.  USAID implements a broad range of activities to improve economic policies and institutions, to encourage the development of the private sector, to establish a sound investment climate, to support trade, and to more actively participate in the multilateral and regional trading systems.  In designing these activities it is important to recognize that they must be consistent with U.S. foreign policy objectives as stated in Section 601 of the Foreign Assistance Act (FAA) of 1961, as amended; the U.S. Government’s trade and development objectives set forth in trade legislation; and related policy documents.
