The Vice President’s trip to Ghana, Tanzania, and Zambia is a follow-up to the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in December 2022, following up on President Biden’s commitment that we are “all in” with the continent of Africa.
As the Vice President said at the Summit, the Biden-Harris Administration is guided not by what we can do “for” Africa, but what we can do “with” Africa.
The United States views the African continent as critical to addressing global challenges, and the Vice President’s visit is another opportunity to engage with partners on shared objectives.
Through her bilateral meetings, the Vice President will discuss regional security; strengthening business ties; debt-relief and long-term economic growth; democracy and good governance; support for international rules and norms; the impacts of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; and our concerns with China’s engagement on the continent.
