From March 25 to April 2, US Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Accra, Ghana; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Lusaka, Zambia.
Douglas Emhoff, her spouse, will go with her.
The trip will expand on the recently concluded U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, which President Biden held in Washington, D.C., in December 2022.
The trip will progress our joint efforts on security and economic prosperity and reinforce American alliances across Africa.
Mrs. Harris will advance initiatives to increase access to the digital economy, support climate adaptation and resilience, and strengthen business ties and investment throughout the trip in collaboration with African governments and the private sector, including through innovation, entrepreneurship, and the economic empowerment of women.
Presidents Samia Hassan of Tanzania, President Hakainde Hichilema of Zambia, and President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana will all meet with the Vice President.
In addition to other topics, they will talk about regional and global objectives, such as our common dedication to democracy, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, food security, and the results of Russia’s unprovoked conflict in Ukraine.
The vice president will foster interpersonal relationships and interact with members of civil society, such as youthful leaders, businesspeople, entrepreneurs, and individuals from the African Diaspora.
