West Africa Trade and Investment Hub Job

Project Summary

The USAID-funded West Africa Trade and Investment Hub Project (the Trade Hub) is a five-year trade and investment facilitation Activity that seeks to improve private sector competitiveness in West Africa through market-based approaches. The Trade Hub is an integral part of Prosper Africa initiative and partners with the U.S. and West African private sector firms to generate new private-sector investment in key sectors to create jobs and increase trade between the U.S. and West Africa, including through increased utilization of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). This Activity comprises of two main components: (i) design and administration of a grant-making facility for private sector partnerships and (ii) technical assistance (TA) that directly supports, coordinates, and engages with qualifying recipients (i.e., partners and grantees) to achieve USAID’s trade and food security objectives.

Through this co-investment facility and technical assistance, the Trade Hub will improve companies’ ability to expand business operations, increase productivity, and create jobs that build on the talents and aspirations of West Africa’s growing population. The Trade Hub will collaborate on specific commercial opportunities with firms, service providers, research organizations, and other business network actors to access private capital that will contribute to the creation of large-scale jobs, exports, and investment, particularly with strong demonstrated or potential links to the U.S. companies and investors. The Trade Hub is also innovating catalytic grants under contract for co-investments, first loss provisions for new fund structures, special purpose vehicles, digital platforms, and transaction advisory services to achieve objectives.
