In partnership with Prosper Africa, Feed the Future, and other initiatives, the USAID Africa Bureau, Africa Regional Missions, and the Middle East Bureau are jointly establishing the Africa Trade and Investment (ATI) Activity. The purpose of this Activity is to mobilize enterprise-driven solutions that increase trade and investment in Africa, including North and Sub- Saharan Africa. It will strengthen Africa’s markets by developing new trade and investment relationships, particularly between the U.S. and Africa, and achieve development outcomes across North and sub-Saharan Africa, by mobilizing enterprise-driven solutions and supporting healthy business climates.
Driven by market demand, the Activity will embrace innovative approaches to achieve its goals. The Activity is envisioned as a small, core set of centrally coordinated technical and institutional support activities, and a large, flexible performance-based subcontracting and grants under contract facility designed to support the needs and opportunities that missions, and the private sector identify. The Activity will mobilize private sector resources and expertise, in conjunction with other USG interagency partners, resulting in the increased capacity, competitiveness and availability of businesses, investors and intermediaries that will drive future trade and investment efforts on Africa’s Journey to Self-Reliance.
The ATI trade objective seeks to mobilize trade, including two-way between the U.S. and Africa, through a proactive approach that identifies and/or improves private sector awareness of opportunities, information sharing and direct facilitation of new and existing business relationships. This effort will require significant collaboration and creativity that leverages the combined resources of the USG.
The role will also facilitate increased information sharing with the private sector to ensure programming is grounded in transactions and market opportunities that businesses and investors are specifically pursuing. Building on almost two decades of successful Trade Hub work, the mechanism will have a particular focus on supporting African exports, intra-Africa and to the U.S. Activities must also accelerate the implementation of the existing Africa Growth and Opportunity Act. (AGOA) export strategies and trade preferences with the U.S.
The role will employ an approach that empowers companies to identify and directly manage these efforts rather than establish a list of predefined service offerings and experts. Firms will be expected to co-invest in these activities.
The Trade Specialist will provide technical inputs into the implementation of ATI’s Africa-based trade and enabling environment activities to leverage and support relationships with key stakeholders with the regional economic bodies, trade promotion agencies; African and international nongovernmental organizations (including development banks and financial institutions, national or regional business and trade associations); and African businesses, trade service providers and other potential partners.
This role will work collaboratively and in conjunction with the Activity Managers, Investment Specialist, and MEL Specialist to coordinate and deliver all ATI technical trade and enabling environment activities, delivering on deals from various Annual Program Statements and other approaches, and ensuring adoption of ATI in all buy-in activities across the continental teams. The Trade Specialist will manage trade and business enabling environment activities as assigned by the Senior Technical Director- Africa for a responsive, demand-driven implementation.
The Trade Specialist reports to the ATI Senior Technical Director- Africa.
