Greetings from the Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce
You are cordially invited to our September 2020 Webinar with the West Africa Trade and Investment Hub.
Date: Thursday 17 September 2020
Time: 12 pm Nigerian Time
Topic: USAID Activities with the West African Trade and Investment Hub
The West Africa Trade and Investment Hub, an initiative of the USAID, is set up with the aim of catalyzing economic growth in West Africa utilizing a market-based approach. With its co-investment fund, the Hub is expected to attract $300 million of private investment, create 40,000 new jobs, and increase regional and international trade. Emphasis will be on supporting Agro-allied sector/value chain as well as SMEs.
Thereby, Karl Littlejohn, Deputy Chief of Party for USAID West African Trade & Investment Hub Project will lead team discussions on programmes and opportunities available for companies to partner with the Trade Hub, notably under COVID-19 rapid response. Members interested in taking advantage of AGOA to export to the United States as well as those interested in Research and Development initiatives within USAID’s five target value chains (maize, rice, soy, cowpea, aquaculture) are highly encouraged to participate
For sponsorship opportunities of this and other Chamber activities in the year, please contact the undersigned for further details.
