Earlier this week, Secretary Darcy and Lt. Gen Semonite met with the Mekong River Commission and spent time on the Mississippi River aboard the motor vessel Mississippi. The Mekong River Commission is visiting the U.S. to learn more about how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages the world's third largest watershed.
The Presidentially appointed Mississippi River Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continue to meet with international partners to learn and share best practices. The Mekong River Commission and the Corps of Engineers / MRC have executed a Memorandum of Agreement
The continued collaboration has been very beneficial to these two commissions and the nations they represent.
