Businesses Webinar

Tue, Jul 14, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT

UNLOCKING INFRASTRUCTURE GROWTH POTENTIAL: SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA
Jul 14 @ 3:16 pm – 4:16 pm

Join us for an in-depth conversation on infrastructure project opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa, featuring perspectives from Kansas City Engineering Leaders and Key Government Resources.

With six of the ten fastest growing economies in the world and over one billion consumers, Africa is poised to play a pivotal role in the global economy. Meanwhile, producers in Africa see a U.S. consumer market of more than 300 million people that already has a purchasing power of $13 trillion — the largest in the world. American companies not only bring significant capital, innovation, and proven solutions, but adhere to the highest standards of transparency, quality, and social responsibility. A greater connection between the U.S. and African private sectors will expand markets for U.S. goods and services and contribute to more self-reliant, prosperous, and stable African countries.

The Kansas City region is a global destination for architecture, engineering, and design talent making it one of the top five concentrations of U.S. architecture and engineering employment. Firms here have a global impact of more than $14 billion in annual global revenue (2017) by exporting top-notch engineering & design products and services spanning all sectors.

The U.S. Commercial Service Kansas City, in partnership with the World Trade Center Kansas City, invites you to participate in this virtual program featuring speakers from Black & Veatch, Alpha Energy & Electric, Millennium Challenge Corporation, and the U.S. Commercial Service Mozambique. The diversity of the speakers will allow a breadth of conversation around both large company and SME exporter perspectives on the market, donor-financed development programs, as well as current infrastructure project opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Prosper Africa(link is external) is a U.S. Government Initiative that unlocks opportunities to do business in Africa — benefiting companies, investors, and workers both in Africa and the United States. The goal is to substantially increase two-way trade and investment between the United States and Africa.

Part 1: Journalism in a Changing World
Jul 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Information in a Digital Age Series
Access to more information does not necessarily mean what we read and see is reliable and factual. Discussions in this three-part series will focus on how journalism and reporting has been impacted by increased connectivity to the world around us. The sessions will focus on how journalists are adapting to challenges of misinformation and changing landscapes and offer insight into the “fake news” phenomenon. Additionally, this series will address the global impact of disinformation campaigns and what steps cyber security experts are taking to combat these actions.

Part 1 Journalism in a Changing World
Journalists have long played an important role in providing news, information and accountability around the globe. With evolving technological advances and increased connectivity, the way people receive news and information continues to evolve as well. In an age where “breaking news” is readily available at any given moment, how have journalists kept pace? Have journalistic standards been adjusted or impacted by technology? Or influenced by other factors? In this session, panelists will discuss the role of journalists around the world, the experiences and challenges they face in reporting, and their efforts to ensure the public has access to solid and reliable information.

Topics of Discussion
• What is the role of journalists around the world?
• How has journalism around the world been impacted by technology?
• How has consumption of news via the internet – and via apps specifically – changed what is reported and how?
• Have journalistic best practices evolved due to changing technologies and platforms? If so, how?

We’ll include time for questions and answers.
