This event is being held virtually and is open to everyone.

Minnesota Africans United, in partnership with Global Minnesota and Equity Group Holdings (the largest financial institution in the East/Central African region, including Kenya and Tanzania) and with the support of Prosper Africa, is excited to announce the 3rd Annual US – African Trade Partnership Conference. This conference will showcase successful examples of two-way trade and investment strategies that are creating profitable and resilient relationships on both sides of the ocean.

We’ll be hearing from participants in the Ghana/Cameroon trade delegation who came away with multiple signed agreements, and we’ll look ahead to the next big mission to Kenya and Tanzania.

This historic annual African summit will feature global leaders like President Joyce Banda, former president of Malawi, President & CEO of Equity Group Holdings, James Mwangi; Governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz (invited); and Mr. Travis Adkins, President & Chief Executive Officer, United States African Development Foundation (invited), as well as high-level cabinet officials from the U.S. Government including, US Department of Agriculture, Power Africa, Small Business Administration, U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) and US Department of Commerce.
