According to Dr. Balla, the current situation offers a great opportunity for the Trump administration to further the substantial gains achieved in Africa thanks to U.S. development assistance on several fronts. Only by working together, The U.S. and Africa have been able to achieve real Economic & Social success including in agriculture and food security, health sector, uprooting poverty, infrastructure and promoting democracy and human rights. 

Dr. Balla said: “Africa’s positive trends require sustained support and nurturing within the framework of mutually beneficial relations. As the US continues to support Africa’s economic growth the latter can create new export markets for American goods and services.”

Only through continued support from wealthy countries like the U.S. will the African countries be able to progress from being under development to emerging as nations statute sectors that require the most focus  include the following: agriculture and food security; economic growth and trade; democracy, human rights and governance; health; education; crises prevention and conflict resolution; and public-private partnerships. Dr. Balla identified micro-credit combined with Mobile Banking as an effective lifting thousands of Africans out of poverty.

Several African countries have had recurring peaceful transitions from one democratically elected government to another. This hopeful trend deserves encouragement and support.”
