In brief: US unveils new investments in Central America

*US Vice President Kamala Harris has announced over US$1.9bn in new private sector commitments to create economic opportunity in northern Central America. According to a statement by The White House, this more than doubles the value of initial private sector investments in response to Harris’s Call to Action, which was launched in May 2021 for businesses and social enterprises to make significant commitments to promote economic opportunity for people in the region. The latest announcement follows on that made in December 2021 of US$1.2bn in private sector investments. According to The White House, the Call to Action now includes 40 companies and organisations that have made commitments to invest in the region, representing financial services, textiles and apparel, agriculture, technology and telecommunications, and non-profits.  In addition, the Call to Action has generated new collaboration across participating companies, further boosting the initiative’s impact.
