British Robinson Jason Ferraro

Prosper Africa is a U.S. Presidential-level whole of government initiative to strengthen the U.S.-Africa strategic partnership by catalyzing increased two-way trade and investment at transformative scale. This in-depth panel on Prosper’s recently launched “Africa Trade Desk” will highlight how Prosper works with partners to leverage innovation, technology, and collaboration, transforming U.S.-Africa trade into a dynamic, sustainable, and empowering relationship. Participants will learn how the Africa Trade Desk helps U.S. retailers diversify their sourcing, reduce dependencies on traditional supply chains, and embrace high-quality, sustainable products from Africa. At the same time, they will see how the platform helps aggregate and capacitate African producers with a focus on women-owned and small to medium sized enterprises and increasing AGOA utilization.
