  • Networking events will be designed to facilitate one-on-one meetings and site visits.  Generation of these meetings will be supported by US Embassy representatives in country, but participants are welcome to initiate on their own.

  • Legal and regulatory briefings will occur in which government and trade association individuals will lay out the unmet needs of the country, aspirations for meeting those needs, current policies, and procedures, identify barriers to using US companies’ help with solutions, and suggest paths forward.

  • The delegation will engage with entrepreneurs, business leaders, and government officials to promote trade and investment opportunities.
