Council on Foreign Relations’ “Africa in Transition”: Senator Coons on U.S.-Africa Relationship
John Campbell, the Ralph Bunche senior fellow for Africa policy studies at CFR, describes a recent congressional delegation visit to Nigeria, led by Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.). Campbell writes, “During that trip, the Senator delivered an important speech in Lagos in which he reaffirmed the American commitment to a ‘deep and lasting relationship with Africa.’ … And the Senator also referred to specific programs established by Democratic and Republican presidents that help make the U.S.-Africa relationship strong, ranging from the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) to the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to Power Africa. He made it clear that building the U.S.-African relationship has always been a bipartisan goal…” (9/8).
