At the same time, the program will help U.S. financial institutions and exporters to learn about and how to pursue opportunities to participate in largescale business opportunities arising from transformational infrastructure projects in Africa. The goal of the Roadshow is to bring a new level of transparent and flexible private sector funding while providing private sector tools to improve the investment climate to allow more U.S. companies to close business deals. The Roadshow is an initiative developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in response to the need expressed by African leaders and the U.S. private sector for increased access to long-term private capital to fund large scale infrastructure projects in Africa. It is a direct follow-up to the 2014 U.S.Africa Business Forum and an official recommendation made by the President’s Advisory Council on Doing Business in Africa. For more information on the Roadshow concept, please see the official recommendations made by the President’s Advisory Council on Doing Business in Africa: http://www.trade.gov/pac-dbia/docs/ PAC-DBIA-Report_Final.pdf. The inaugural launch in New York, New York will be the first event in a series of high-level engagements that are expected to be scheduled to take place across the continent of Africa.

The launch event will comprise of approximately 20–25 individuals consisting of U.S. Government officials, government officials from African countries (expected to include at least some government Ministers and one or more heads of state), and representatives of U.S. institutional investors. The program will include keynote speeches, panels, and other presentations by attendees from both government and business.
