US: Who’s who in Biden’s Africa team

-

In a change of gear from the Trump administration, the team that President Biden has assembled to guide policy, security and economic relations with the continent have many decades of cumulative experience in Africa. Diplomats, the diaspora and the economy are in the ascendency.

The US administration has made it clear that Africa will be at the forefront of US foreign policy, along with a focus on democracy around the world. As President Biden stated on the International Day of Democracy: “No democracy is perfect, and no democracy is ever final. Every gain made, every barrier broken, is the result of determined, unceasing work.”
