America Hosts US-Africa Leaders Summit
The United States President, Mr Joe Biden will host President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and colleague African leaders, starting Tuesday, December 13, 2022 in Washington D.C. for the US-Africa Leaders Summit.
The Summit is set to showcase America’s continuous commitment to Africa.
It will also demonstrate the importance of US-Africa relations and increased cooperation on shared global priorities.
The American Ambassador to Ghana, Virginia Palmer disclosed this on JoyNews yesterday.
She said, “Indeed, Africa is just very important to the United States and the United States President and it is a wonderful opportunity to talk about issues of mutual concern; the climate, global security, democracy and of course economic progress, and the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and preparation for any other pandemic that might come.”
“There is a youth and diaspora summit, and President Akufo-Addo is going to play a big role in that. Again, the year of return and the role of diaspora in both countries, I think it is very important. There is a function on peace and security and West African Security will be important for that.”
“On the second day, there’s a whole business day…and then there will be deals that feature in that and then the third day is the actual summit and again Ghana is very important. So I know President Akufo- Addo will have very important things to say.”
The US-Africa Leaders Summit will be expected to provide ample opportunity for all participating leaders and their countries to amplify diaspora ties and promote education in youth leadership.
