Welcome to SATSA, the Sub-Saharan Africa Transnational Strategic Alliance!
Our organization is an important resource for non-government organizations, small-to-medium enterprises and multi-national corporations in the United States that are interested in pursuing bilateral trade, infrastructure and economic development opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
Collectively, the 48 SSA countries represent one of the world’s fastest growing regional economies; and U.S. support has contributed substantially to that growth. Examples of important initiatives that the American government has established in recent years include the African Growth and Opportunity Act, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and Power Africa.
In August 2014, President Barack Obama welcomed leaders from across the African continent to Washington, D.C. for a U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, the largest that any U.S. President has held with African heads of state. African leaders met with the President, U.S. government officials, other key leaders, and business executives from the U.S. and Africa to discuss topics that included the expansion of trade and investment ties. SATSA was pleased to participate in this groundbreaking event.
Through its experience and expertise, SATSA matches business needs that have been identified by African governments with U.S. companies capable of meeting those needs. SATSA’s services are targeted to clients who recognize the tremendous potential of business partnerships in emerging markets.
