DAKAR, SENEGAL - Mike Pompeo kicked off his first trip as Secretary of State to sub-Saharan Africa over the weekend by meeting with business leaders, attending a worship service at a local church and by visiting with successful entrepreneurs who started their companies with aid programs funded by the United States. 

"This is very special, my first stop in this trip here to Senegal to talk about the power of the private sector, of the private sector to drive economic growth and value for the United States and for the people of Senegal and for your country. We’ve got some great work that’s been done. We’ll have agreements signed between Bechtel and the Ministry of Economy, a highway, a financing with ABD and General Electric, great American companies will all sign these agreements today. They’re important because not only will they deliver value here in Senegal and be good for these American and global companies, but they point towards a prosperous, secure place here in Senegal, here in Dakar, and they are the tip of the iceberg about the things that we can all do together," Pompeo said Sunday morning. 

"So I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be here with you all this morning to celebrate these great accomplishments between our two countries, and importantly, between our two private sectors. So thank you all so much for making this happen," he continued.  

Secretary Pompeo is now on his way to Angola.
