President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, has invited 49 African Heads of State and the head of the African Union for a three-day US-Africa Leaders Summit.

The summit will be held in Washington DC, from December 13 to 15, 2022.

This was made known in a statement made available to the newsmen on Thursday by the US Embassy in Abuja.

The statement noted that “the summit’s agenda will be packed, including increasing sustainable food production, strengthening health systems, providing humanitarian assistance, responding to the climate crisis, reinforcing democracy and human rights, boosting US-African trade, advancing peace and security, and even enhancing space research and cooperation.”

However, the goal of the summit is to build and expand vital political, economic, and strategic partnerships as well as people-to-people dialogue based on mutual interests and shared priorities in Africa.
