INTRODUCTION

       Thank you Mr. Chairman for the opportunity to speak again to the Members of this

Committee.



       First, let me offer my thanks to the men and women of the U.S. Department of State, who

have committed their professional lives to support the foreign policy work of the United States.

In particular, I want to thank my staff at the U.S. Mission to the European Union. Your integrity,

dedication, and hardwork -- often performed without public acclaim or recognition -- serve as a

shining example of true public service, and I am personally grateful to work beside you each and

every day.



       It is my honor to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union. The U.S. Mission

to the EU is the direct link between the United States and the European Union and its members,

America's longest-standing allies and one of the largest economic blocks in the world. Every

day, I work to support a strong, united, and peaceful Europe. Strengthening our ties with Europe

serves both American and European goals, as we together promote political stability and

economic prosperity around the world.
