ONE Outlines Priorities for US-Africa Leaders Summit

The US-Africa Leaders Summit hosted by President Biden next week is the administration’s first opportunity to set America’s strategy for and with Africa. The ONE Campaign will be looking for tangible signs that the United States is responsive to the immediate challenges facing the continent while also shaping a long-term relationship built on mutual interest and informed by Africa’s economic aspirations and potential.

In addition to reaffirming its commitment to Africa, the administration should use this summit as an opportunity to create and build on strategic initiatives that will increase cooperation on major transnational issues including health, trade, debt, food security, and the continent’s rising political weight on the world stage. How we build this partnership could be one of the most important things the US could do for global prosperity in the coming decades and the stakes are high.

Below is a list of initiatives and outcomes the administration should prioritize for the upcoming summit:

  • A Presidential visit to Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Economic growth initiatives through private sector investments & trade with Africa
  • Accelerate and modernize the global economic response through debt relief & lending reform
  • Push for an African Union seat at the G20
  • Global health resiliency
  • Food Security
