The mission of the U.S.-Africa Business Center is to build lasting prosperity for Africans and Americans through job creation and entrepreneurial spirit.

The biggest obstacles to economic engagement across Africa are the unknown and perceived risks. The Africa Business Center's job is to help companies mitigate these risks through advocacy and access and by identifying investment opportunities.

Under the Africa Business Center's leadership, sector task forces, made up of U.S. corporate representatives, will engage key members of Congress, the Administration, and foreign governments in strategic dialogues to foster private sector engagement.
