Leveraging Powerful Public-Private Partnerships for Development

The U.S. roadshow tour will kick off with a high-level roundtable on “Mobilizing Financing from the U.S. Government for U.S. and African Businesses”.  A panel of leading officials from U.S. government agencies will highlight how businesses can tap into government and private equity financing to enter and scale in the African marketplace.

The Private Sector Engagement Forum session in the afternoon will put forth strategies to deepen private sector participation and engagement with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and other development actors for inclusive growth in Africa.
