BACKGROUND
The Reverse Trade Mission series is one of the pillars of USTDAs Access Africa initiative, a
partnership between USTDA and U.S. industry leaders to support the development of quality ICT
infrastructure across Africa. The ICT sector in Africa presents considerable opportunity for U.S.
companies to support the necessary infrastructure and services in several growing markets.
Many countries in Africa are well positioned for sharp increases in internet connectivity. The private
sector, governments, and nancial institutions in the region are increasingly looking to ICT solutions
to expand available services and improve internal systems and business processes.
Attendance at this event is limited to U.S. individuals, U.S. rms, or U.S. consultants as dened by
