Africa & U.S. National Interests


The 90th American Assembly examined US-Africa policy in relation to regional economic integration, democratization and governance, and emerging security and leadership initiatives.  The Assembly looked beyond common media images of Africa to focus on the continent's dramatic political and economic evolution in the past few decades.  Participants urged the creation of an Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Africa post, continued Congressional development aid, and presidential engagement with African nations.
