The USAID East Africa Trade and Investment Hub (the Hub) partners with East African and U.S. businesses to attract investment that transforms the East African private sector into vibrant global trading partners. The USAID Hub also promotes a more predictable, transparent and enabling business environment  in East Africa by supporting adherence to intra-regional and international trade agreements and conformity to international standards. Improving the region’s trade competitiveness, encouraging the diversification of exports beyond natural resources, and promoting broader, more-inclusive economic growth will lead to more food secure and resilient East African communities. A stable, business-friendly Africa also provides economic opportunities for U.S. companies and workers, and reduces irregular migration and violent extremism.
