NEW PATHWAYS TO U.S.-AFRICA BUSINESS ENGAGEMENT
Since the last U.S.-Africa Business Summit in 2019, the U.S. administration and African governments have demonstrated a renewed commitment to developing business-friendly initiatives and policies that foster greater economic engagement.
The United States government has new tools that will help expand U.S.-Africa trade and investment. These include the implementation of Prosper Africa, the creation of the International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), and the reauthorization of the U.S. Export Import Bank for seven years.
Similarly, African governments are beginning to put in place the world's largest free trade zone, the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA).
The 2020 Summit themed "New Pathways to U.S.-Africa Business Engagement" is specifically designed to provide a platform for delegates to explore new resources, tools and models to advance U.S.-Africa business and investment.
From plenary sessions and sector-focused panel discussions, to private meetings and Invest-In county roundtables with Heads of State, there will be countless opportunities to meet new partners, gather insights, and meet your business development goals.
