John Hewko '79
John Hewko '79 Addresses U.N. on Social and Economic Development of Least Developed Countries
John Hewko '79, vice president of operations for the Millennium Challenge Corporation, addressed the United Nations on Sept. 18. He spoke at a meeting about social and economic development of least developed countries. Hewko said, "In Monterrey, President Bush announced a path-breaking program, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, or MCC. The MCC’s single focus is to provide support to those poor countries which are indeed taking steps to invest in their own people, to promote economic freedom and opportunity, and to encourage accountable and inclusive governance, where individual rights and free expression are respected.

MCC’s mandate is to reduce poverty through sustainable growth. We work with partners whose own performance makes reaching that goal a real possibility. The MCC is already engaged with 23 countries whose policy performance, measured by independent, objective indicators, has made them eligible for MCC funds. Among them are 12 Least Developed Countries."
