:-

*To conclude an agreement with Kenya that can serve as a model for
additional agreements in Africa, leading to a network of agreements that
contribute to Africa’s regional integration objectives. In addition, the
goal is to conclude an agreement that builds on the objectives of #AGOA
<www.linkedin.com/feed/hashtag/?keywords=agoa&highlightedUpdateUrns=urn%3Ali%3Aactivity%3A6706564288401686528>
and
will serve as an enduring foundation to expand U.S -Africa trade and
investment across the continent.*

Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA)
<www.linkedin.com/company/kenya-private-sector-alliance-kepsa/> in
its wisdom chose a number of companies to be in the consortium of the
US-Kenya FTA negotiations/conversations.

Now…Is it just me or don’t I understand International Trade? Someone,
please explain to me why in that group of companies you have 9 American
companies on the list? Including IBM <www.linkedin.com/company/ibm/>
, The Coca-Cola Company
<www.linkedin.com/company/the-coca-cola-company/>, and Citi
<www.linkedin.com/company/citi/>.

This is like scoring an own goal before starting the game! Or am I wrong?
Please explain to me the rationale?

Join the conversation.
