Secretary #Blinken At an MOU Signing with Democratic Republic of the #Congo and #Zambia

This memorandum of understanding that we’re about to sign signals the support by the U.S. Government for what is a very important project between these two countries.  Different government agencies, USAID, Commerce, the Trade and Development Agency, are exploring technical assistance for the EV supply chain.  Our EXIM Bank, the Development Finance Corporation, will be exploring financing and support mechanisms for investment in African electric vehicle value chains.
