These companies will be joined by representatives from the US Agency for International Development, US Commercial Service Liaison to the AfDB, US Department of Commerce, US Department of State, and the US Trade Development Agency.

The key sectors these companies have set their sights set on include; agribusiness, energy, healthcare, infrastructure, ICT, and manufacturing, amongst others.

During the 2 days fact-finding mission, these companies will receive briefings from the US embassy at Dar es Salaam.

The mission will be led by the US Embassy in Dar es Salaam, in collaboration with the American Chambers of Commerce, ‘AmCham’ of Tanzania, Kenya, and South Africa.

CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce, Kenya, Maxwell Okello stated; “This mission provides an excellent avenue to gather insights and engage directly with relevant government and private sector stakeholders. It is also a great opportunity for both countries to explore ways to deepen their commercial ties and engagement which supports the achievement of economic goals driving wealth and job creation.”
