U.S. Department of Agriculture closes offices in the FSM

FSMIS (October 14, 2013): On October 4, the United States Embassy in Kolonia advised the FSM National Government through the FSM Department of Foreign Affairs that due to budgetary crisis in the U. S. Federal Government, offices under the U.S. Department of Agriculture in the FSM are closed.

These office affected are the USDA Rural Development (USDA/RD) and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Services (USDA/NRCS), based in Pohnpei State, and the USDA Forest Services on Yap.

The offices will resume operations when funding is restored by the U.S. Government.

[Note: The FSM Information Office was notified about the information above through an October 14 memo received on the same day from the Department in charge.]
