A new weekly video podcast spotlights current events at the intersection of Africa and the United States.
Africa- USA The 10-week series launches at a pivotal time following the historic US-Africa Summit and the renewed commitment to partnership between Africa and the US.
President of the African Development Bank Group, Akinwumi Adesina, which is sponsoring the program said “This is an important program that will address roadblocks to engagement, highlight significant trade and investment opportunities, and hopefully change the narrative on Africa and the dynamic changes taking place on the continent”.
Executive Director of the World Trade Center in Washington, DC, Allyson McKi said “This is a must-watch series for international trade professionals and industry experts”, which will distribute the program to the 320 World Trade Centers around the world, reaching over 715,000 businesses worldwide.
Carol Pineau, award-winning filmmaker and journalist added,“Every day, events happen in Washington and the US that deeply affect Africa, but the media is often not connecting these actions to Africa. At the same time, Africa is rapidly evolving, and it’s in our strategic interest to understand these changes, especially with so much global competition out there”.
The current events talk show features African and American policymakers and experts examining issues around burgeoning trade and investment opportunities.
