Danilovich Touts MCC Successes

Several Millennium Challenge Corp. projects - especially in agriculture - are already bearing fruit, said Ambassador John J. Danilovich before leaving his post as MCC chief executive in January 2009. The Obama team has expressed support for the five-year-old government corporation, he added, a day after Hillary Clinton's Senate confirmation hearing to become U.S. secretary of state.

In his interview with Devex, Danilovich also discussed MCC successes and the importance of aid accountability, international aid reform and the difference between China and MCC's development strategies, MCC partnerships and collaborations with civil society, as well as his advice for the next MCC chief.
