U.S. Views on Trade Issues with Africa

With Guest Speaker:

Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Africa

Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR)

Thursday, December 13, 2018

3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.


Corporate Council on Africa

1100 17th Street, N.W., Suite 1200

Washington, D.C. 20036

Ms. Hamilton will discuss U.S. policy towards trade and investment with Africa. She will explain how and why the U.S. supports greater African regional economic integration, as well as how U.S. pursuit of a bilateral Free Trade Agreement with an African country can serve as a model for pursuing broader engagement. Africa is set to become an increasingly important market for U.S. firms, based on its sustained economic growth rates and steadily increasing population. Greater U.S. engagement on trade issues with Africa now will be in the best interests of both America and Africa.
