Economic Corridor Approach: PGI focuses on developing economic corridors – geographic areas with integrated investments that are designed to stimulate economic development. Geographically connected, these investments in transportation, clean energy supply chains, information and communications technology, agricultural systems, or health and health security leverage broader and more transformative effects, with the aim of significantly boosting economic development opportunities.

At the 2023 G7 Summit, President Biden announced U.S. support for development of the Lobito Corridor, which has the potential to become a transformative economic link connecting the African continent from west to east. This commitment would develop rail that would become the primary open access transportation infrastructure connecting the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Zambia and Angola. To date, the United States has announced the intent to finance through the Development Finance Corporation (DFC) an initial $250 million investment in a rail refurbishment from the Lobito Port in Angola to the border of the DRC in Luau. As a second phase, we will expand the rail connectivity in the region, both enabling investment in an under-developed agro-ecological zone to support global food security and securing an open access trade route for critical minerals to support the accelerated global demand for electric vehicles and other climate-forward technology.


Investments in creating and strengthening economic corridors that connect economies through key transportation infrastructure.

Clean Energy Supply Chains

Investments in clean energy and climate resilient infrastructure. This includes developing clean energy supply chains across the full integrated lifecycle, consisting of the responsible and sustainable mining of metals and minerals, low-emissions transportation and hard infrastructure, investing in new global refining, processing and battery manufacturing sites, promoting diversity across the full critical minerals value chain, and deploying proven, as well as innovative, scalable technologies in places that do not yet have access to clean energy.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT)

Investments in developing, expanding, and deploying secure information and communications technology (ICT) network and infrastructure to power economic growth and facilitate open digital societies – from working with trusted suppliers to provide 5G and 6G digital connectivity, to piloting Open Radio Access Network technology in critical countries, to supporting access to platforms and services that depend upon an open, interoperable, secure, and reliable internet and mobile networks with sound cybersecurity.

Agricultural Systems

The world is facing a global food security crisis. Climate change is also crippling global agricultural production and increasing the frequency and severity of climatic shocks impacting food systems, including an unprecedented drought in the Horn of Africa. To effectively build resilient food systems that are better able to withstand future shocks as well as spur inclusive, regional and interregional economic growth, PGI supports investments in catalytic agriculture-related infrastructure alongside the U.S. Government’s development assistance support for food security and agriculture.

Health and Health Security

Investments that develop and upgrade health systems infrastructure and contribute to global health security including through accessible patient-centered health services, vaccine and essential medical product manufacturing, disease surveillance and early warning systems, and safe and secure labs.
