CS-AfDB Team with U.S. ED to the AfDB the Honourable Mr. Walter Crawford Jones
Located temporarily in Tunis, Tunisia, the African Development Bank Group is a regional multilateral development finance institution, engaged in promoting the economic development and social progress of its African member countries. Consisting of the African Development Bank, the African Development Fund, and the Nigerian Trust Fund, these three institutions approve approximately $4 billion annually in projects that offer significant business opportunities for U.S. consultants, contractors, suppliers, manufacturers and project developers.
U.S. companies interested in business opportunities available through the African Development Bank should contact the Commercial Liaison Office1, which is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce's Foreign Commercial Service. Located in one of the Bank buildings, the U.S. Commercial Liaison Office is dedicated to assisting and supporting U.S. companies by offering the following services:
We can help you identify key contacts at the Bank and in the borrowing government should you have questions regarding a specific project.
On your next visit to the Bank, the AfDB Commercial Liaison can arrange for you to meet with key individuals, including the AfDB U.S. Executive Director, project task managers, industry experts, procurement officers, private sector department Investment Officers, and others as appropriate.
If you cannot visit Tunis, we can arrange a videoconference for you to meet with key Bank officials. There is a cost recovery fee for this service due to associated charges with the videoconference connection.
