Finding great partners

Africa's Women take the lead

 
 

In recent decades Africa’s women have assumed more important roles in the lives of their countries.  They are increasingly educated, increasingly participate in the labor force and are slowly narrowing the earnings gap with men.  And they are benefiting from ongoing legal reforms that allow them to own property, start businesses and access credit.

DID YOU KNOW?

 

The women of Africa have held – or currently hold – positions as presidents, prime ministers, ministers of all kinds and members of legislative bodies. Just to give a couple of examples, half of the current South African cabinet is comprised of women and Rwanda has for several years ranked first in the world for percentage of women in its legislature.

 
 

BRINGING VALUE TO BOTH CONTINENTS

 

The US - Africa Business Bridge will promote a more robust US business presence in Africa – leading to an increase in US jobs and more US exports to Africa.

 
 
 

In addition, it will give the leading female entrepreneurs of Africa – who are motivated by long-term success – opportunities to grow their businesses at home and in the American market and to acquire expertise and capital from their American partners.    

 

SECTORS

 
 

Sub-Saharan Africa offers enormous potential for trade and investment to American businesses.  An upcoming population boom – of an additional 1.3 billion people by 2050 – translates to a significant and immediate need for new infrastructure in all sectors. And -- with a rapidly growing middle class across the continent -- the demand for consumer goods is high and climbing.
