US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Bernicat on Wednesday said US Agency for International Development (USAID) will expand its working sphere and supports for the socio-economic development of the marginalised people in Chittagong Hill Tracts.

The ambassador came up with the remarks while talking to the reporters at deputy commissioner’s office on the second day of her visit to the district.

Recalling USAID’s support in education, health and nutrition sectors for the people of the hilly areas, Bernicat said USAID will scale up its finance to expand the area of actions for the remote and isolated communities in the district.

The ambassador met zila parishad chairman and king of the Bomang Circle, Engineer Utch Pru Chowdhury, district police super Zakir Hossain Majumdar and also visited an USAID sponsored project in the hilly areas.

A team of 21 representatives including USAID Country Director Karnia Zaruski also attended the meetings.
