Seeking to build on momentum of recent days, OPIC hosts high-speed networking event for African businesses

In an effort to build on the momentum of recent days that saw billions of new investment committed to Africa, OPIC on Wednesday hosted multiple American and African businesses, as well as representatives from other U.S. Government Agencies for a high-speed networking event to discuss ways the U.S. could support infrastructure projects in Africa.

Officers from OPIC’s financing, political risk insurance and investment funds departments were joined by officials from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im), and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), who provided feedback on different proposed projects.
