BUILD Act Is 'Right Mix' to Boost U.S. Firms & Compete with China

Enactment of the BUILD Act provides what the American private sector needs to promote U.S. investment in Africa and help them compete against subsidized Chinese firms, former U.S. Rep. Ed Royce and Ambassador Robin Renee Sanders argue in an AllAfrica guest column. The legislation passed Congress with bipartisan support and was signed into law by President Trump last October.

The BUILD Act could increase U.S. engagement in ventures like this road infrastructure project in Mozambique supported by the Millennium Challenge Corporation.
