Who we are
The USAID East Africa Trade and Investment Hub works to boost trade and investment with and within East Africa.
The goal of the Hub is to deepen regional integration, increase the competitiveness of select regional agriculture value chains, promote two-way trade with the U.S. under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and facilitate investment and technology that drives trade growth intra-regionally and to global markets.

Where we work
Our main focus is on the East African Community countries - Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. We also provide AGOA-related support in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
The USAID East Africa Trade and Investment Hub is a proud component of two U.S. presidential initiatives, Trade Africa and Feed the Future.
About Trade Africa:
Trade Africa is a partnership between the United States and sub-Saharan Africa to increase internal and regional trade within Africa, and expand trade and economic ties among Africa, the United States, and other global markets.
About Feed the Future:
Feed the Future works from farms to markets to tables to improve incomes and nutrition. Our goal is to reduce the prevalence of poverty and the prevalence of stunted children (a measure of under nutrition) each by 20 percent in the areas where we work. This means more families will be able to lift themselves out of poverty and pay for things like nutritious food, education and health care.
