INCREASED INVESTMENT: The summit can attract foreign investors to Liberia by showcasing its potential and business opportunities. This can lead to increased capital inflows, job creation, and economic growth.

TRADE PARTNERSHIPS: The summit provides a platform for Liberian businesses and entrepreneurs to network and establish trade partnerships with their American counterparts. This can enhance bilateral trade relations and open up new markets for Liberian products.

KNOWLEDGE SHARING: The summit brings together industry leaders, experts, and policymakers from both the US and Africa. This creates an opportunity for knowledge sharing, exchanging best practices, and learning from successful business models. Liberian participants can gain valuable insights and skills to enhance their business operations.
