Malliotakis Named Ranking Member on Newly Formed Foreign Affairs Subcommittee

February 11, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) on Feb. 9 was named Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on International Development, International Organizations and Global Corporate Social Impact, a newly formed subcommittee that will oversee American tax dollars being sent abroad and membership in international organizations such as the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Malliotakis is the only Freshman Member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee selected to serve as a Ranking Member.

"I'm honored to be the only Freshman selected to serve as a Ranking Member on a House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee," said Congresswoman Malliotakis. "This subcommittee is critically important when it comes to protecting our country's social and financial interests around the globe.

"My constituents and I were shocked to learn that hundreds of millions of dollars were being sent to other countries as part of the COVID relief package passed by the last Congress. This is extremely concerning, especially at a time when millions of Americans are suffering, our nation is approaching $30 trillion in debt and President Biden is reentering the WHO without calling for any accountability from China. I intend to use this subcommittee to advocate for transparency, accountability and ethical practices within our international organizations and private-sector partners to ensure taxpayer dollars sent overseas are spent responsibly."

The Subcommittee on International Development, International Organizations and Global Corporate Social Impact promotes responsible and ethical social, environmental and business practices, including:

Best practices to advance foreign aid reform, foreign aid transparency and effectiveness;

Oversight of U.S. multilateral assistance to international organizations and UN agencies

Private sector engagement and public-private partnerships; advancement of U.S. strategic interests;

New technologies and interventions in development, such as digital connectivity and domestic resource mobilization.

"I am pleased Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis will serve as the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on International Development, International Organizations and Global Corporate Social Impact," said House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul. "Her expertise on this topic will be a valuable asset for the work of this important subcommittee in achieving our foreign policy goals and advancing our interests around the world.”

Malliotakis will also serve on the Subcommittee on Europe, Energy, the Environment and Cyber. She previously announced her appointment to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and selection as an Assistant Whip to Rep. Steve Scalise.
