On March 27, 2009 President Barack Obama announced a new strategy for Afghanistan and the region, clearly defining Afghanistan and Pakistan as the top foreign policy priorities for the current Administration. Hence, the Office of Afghanistan and Pakistan Affairs was developed to manage the development programs in these regions. The Office of Afghanistan and Pakistan Affairs manages a program of over $5 billion for both countries.
