Usa Looks To Energy Business Options In Ghana

The United States will be sending what it calls an energy business development mission to Ghana in May this year, it has been announced.

According to the US government, the team will be led by the US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and will be in Accra and later in Nigeria?s Lagos from May 18-23, 2014.

?This mission will promote US exports to Africa by helping US companies launch or increase their business in the energy sector in West Africa,? the US Department of Commerce said last week.

According to the Department, the mission will also help the African region ?develop and manage energy resources and systems, build out power generation and transmission, and distribution?.

?In line with President Obama?s U.S. Strategy Toward Sub-Saharan Africa, this mission is an opportunity to connect U.S. company products, services and expertise to support Africa?s enormous power potential,? said the Commerce Secretary Pritzker

Representatives of the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), the US Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) are expected to participate in the mission?s meetings with officials.
