Participants took part in an astounding 460 business-to-business meetings
“At USDA we are working to sell the bounty of American agriculture. West Africa is a bright spot with a growing middle class that are hungry for our delicious and wholesome agriculture products,” said Censky. “Through this trade mission and other efforts, USDA is proud to support President Trump’s Prosper Africa initiative, which is seeking to boost two-way trade and investment between the United States and Africa. Prosper Africa brings together the full range of U.S. government resources to connect U.S. and African businesses with new buyers, suppliers, and investment opportunities – a win for the United States and for countries across the African continent.”
The mission was based in Accra, Ghana, where Censky also met with Government of Ghana officials, private sector representatives, members of business associations, and academic institutions, to foster U.S.-Africa bilateral trade and encourage increased market access for America’s farmers, ranchers, processors, and exporters.
