The three main partners under the program are the U.S. Department of State, USTDA, and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). Under the program USTDA will leverage its project planning expertise to support activities both eligible for and currently in OPIC's pipeline for private-sector transactions. Paul Marin- Regional Director for sub-Saharan Africa at USTDA and Scott Scheide- Program Director for ACEF at OPIC lead the webinar on Wednesday.
