USAID's Partners for Financial Stability Program (PFS) is a regional program led by the Office of Economic Growth in the Europe and Eurasia (E&E) Bureau. The project builds upon USAID's prior work in the financial sector while addressing some of the key challenges posed by the global financial crisis in the partner countries in Southeast Europe and Eurasia.
