US-Africa Engagement on the AfCFTA
The Atlantic Council is thrilled to host Ambassador Katherine Tai, the 19th United States Trade Representative, and Secretary General Wamkele Mene of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), for a fireside chat about US-African engagement in the AfCFTA.
This discussion comes on the eve of the US-Africa Leaders Summit (ALS), which will advance US-African collaboration on today’s most pressing global and regional priorities. The ALS will reflect the breadth and depth of US partnerships with African governments, businesses, civil society, and citizens—partnerships based on dialogue, respect, and shared values that harness the ingenuity and creativity of American and African people. As part of this high-level summit, Tai will host African trade ministers to take stock of the current state of and explore the future of US-African trade.
