On behalf of Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Commerce Karen Dunn Kelley led a U.S. government delegation to witness the historic final investment decision signing between Anadarko Petroleum of Woodlands, Texas, and the Government of Mozambique. The investment of the Anadarko LNG terminal supports the largest U.S. sourced investment on the African continent in history at $20 billion.
“The Trump Administration is committed to increasing trade with African nations where all can reap the benefits of new investments and economic growth,” said Deputy Secretary of Commerce Karen Dunn Kelley. “American companies and products set the standard in the international market and the historic deal signing between Anadarko Petroleum and the Government of Mozambique reaffirms the goal of achieving long term economic development throughout the region.”
The U.S. government involvement and visit underscores the U.S. commitment to expanding trade, investment and commercial ties between Mozambique and the United States, and furthermore, promoting the strong bond between the United States and Sub-Saharan Africa.
