Doing Business in Sub-Saharan Africa

Under a formal agreement with the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Commercial Service maintains a “Partner Post” program in markets where USCS does not have its own operations. Through this program, CS South Africa and CS Kenya provide guidance and support to State Department economic/commercial section at Sub-Saharan Africa Partner Posts to provide market information and deliver standard Commercial Service products and services (e.g. Gold Key Service, International Company Profile) in the market.

Please find below the contact information for CS “partner post” markets in Sub-Saharan Africa. To request information or services, please contact the economic/commercial officers and specialists and copy the advising Commercial Service trade specialist located in either South Africa or Kenya.
