Private consultation on Prosper Africa

On April 9, the Africa Center hosted senior US government officials to discuss “Prosper Africa,” a key pillar of the Trump Administration’s Africa Strategy.

This convening briefed senior US government and private sector stakeholders on how the Prosper Africa initiative will support US investment across the continent, accelerate the growth of Africa’s middle class, and counter Russia and China’s growing economic footprint. Participants had the opportunity to directly address key policy makers at an early stage of Prosper Arica’s development, raising key issues that need to be addressed in order to successfully promote US private sector engagement in Africa.
