Outgoing U.S. Africa Official Cites ‘Concrete Achievements'

In an @allafrica interview as he ends of his tenure as the top Africa policymaker in the State Department, Assistant Secretary Tibor Nagy says the legacy of the outgoing administration includes a number of 'concrete achievements' that have strengthened U.S. ties to Africa. Among the successes on Nagy's list are the Young African Leaders Initiative and the University Partnership Initiative, along with diplomatic breakthroughs in Sudan and political transitions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola and Mauritania, as well as in Ethiopia - where he acknowledges there remain serious problems. Nagy leaves office when the new president is sworn in on January 20.
