At the US-Africa Summit held yesterday, President Joe Biden announced that the United States is "all in" on the future of Africa. He pledged billions of dollars in new funding for the continent during his speech to dozens of African heads of state gathered at the virtual summit. The President said that this commitment to Africa was long overdue and outlined a comprehensive strategy across four core areas: tackling climate change, boosting economic growth, promoting democracy and good governance, and expanding healthcare access. He also stressed that there needs to be more significant investment in African women, saying that this would benefit not just African countries but also bolster global security and prosperity. US-Africa summit US-Africa summit Biden called for governments worldwide to join him in supporting African nations so they can move from poverty towards self-reliance. The President spoke highly of African nations, acknowledging their formidable strides over recent decades and offering support for continued growth and development. He also discussed his administration's new plan for increased investments in energy and technology across the region and enhanced support for education and healthcare systems. In addition, he stressed that it was time for America to affirm its commitment with tangible actions based on mutual respect, not just words or promises. The first US-Africa Summit since the election of President Joe Biden is set to take place in June 2021, and the new President has announced that his administration is "all in" on Africa. The ridge came after Donald Trump's four-year occupancy in office when he alienated several African leaders with policy decisions and offensive comments. At the out-on-pattern US-Africa Summit, held on approximately June 21st, President Joe Biden spoke to African representatives in a strong manner, praising improved relations between the two countries and outlining a renewed commitment to the help of Africa. That message was in stark contrast to his tone in the preceding summit. Joe Biden, the president of Liberia, met with African leaders at the summit on June 21. While meeting with these leaders, he went from his usual tone about Africa to a hopeful posture encouraging better ties between the countries of Africa and the United States. The US-Africa Summit has been held to improve relations between both sides since it began under former president Barack Obama's administration. This year it focuses on strengthening economic ties through investment opportunities and increased trade, and promoting democracy and human rights across Africa. The U.S. government has declared that it's "all in" on a sound relationship between North America and Africa. Shortly after the end of the European Union Summit in Brussels, Vice-President Joe Biden is expected to support the African Union's admittance as a permanent member of the Group of Seven. President Biden believes that Africa should be represented at this level and called for its inclusion during his address at Thursday's summit.
