Purpose: Prosper Africa External Website (PA-Web) is a U.S. Government initiative to substantially increase two-way trade and investment between the United States and Africa. Prosper Africa brings together the full resources of the U.S. Government – across 17 participating agencies – to connect U.S. and African exporters and investors with new business opportunities. The external website directly connects users to the U.S. Government’s trade and investment support services. Users will be able to explore all of the resources under the Prosper Africa umbrella and then navigate directly to the participating agencies’ websites (e.g. DFC.gov, USAID.gov, etc.) to access that service. The website also features news, impact stories, and additional resources connected to the Prosper Africa Initiative.
