Advance with Africa aims to advance Africa's commercial profile, increase U.S. exports and investment, showcase tools to support new market entrants, and foster commercial opportunities for businesses in the United States and Africa.

This multi-year campaign is targeting cities across the U.S. with a significant African diaspora and minority business communities, existing business linkages with Africa, and high interest from elected officials. Through roadshows, webinars, community engagement, and social media, the program seeks to develop momentum for U.S. enterprises to conduct business with African partners and highlight regionally relevant African investment opportunities.

Join us in this effort to strengthen U.S.-Africa commercial ties and promote economic growth for both regions.
