On July 1, 2013, President Obama announced a major initiative to improve U.S.-Africa trade. The Trade Africa Initiative supports greater U.S.-Africa trade and investment, regional integration, and trade competitiveness. It focuses initially on the Partner States of the East African Community (EAC): Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.
