B360™ (BizSolutions 360 Inc.) headquartered in Washington, DC is one of more than 100 U.S. companies heading to Africa for the U.S. Department of Commerce-led Trade Winds—Africa trade mission and business forum. Trade Winds—Africa is the largest-ever U.S. government-led trade mission to Africa.
“Africa presents an incredible opportunity for global U.S. companies,” said Regional Senior U.S. Commercial Officer Donald Nay, the highest-ranking commercial diplomat in Sub-Saharan Africa. “We are excited to bring these companies to the continent, connect them to promising opportunities, and get them on the right path to success.”
Trade Winds is a business forum and series of business-to-business meetings in Johannesburg, South Africa, plus seven optional trade mission stops in Angola, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Tanzania. At each mission stop, attending companies meet directly with government leaders, market experts, and pre-vetted potential business partners in the region.
B360™ is participating in the business forum and mission stop(s) in Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa. BizSolutions 360 Inc. ‘or B360™’ is a full-service architectural, engineering, construction, program management and design-build firm. Our vision is to draw from our global experience to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions to our clients. B360™ offers services in the Infrastructure, Energy, Power, Environmental, Water and Mining industries.

“Africa presents a great opportunity and interesting challenge for us,” said Peter Karenge, President of B360. “As a firm, B360 is passionate about US-Africa trade, our unique nature enables us to act as bridge between the two continents. We are excited about joining this mission and finding inroads to success in a continent, which is definitely the next global economic frontier.”
Sub-Saharan Africa is a promising market for U.S. exporters. It is home to six of the ten fastest-growing economies in the world and has a rapidly growing middle class.
Trade Winds is an important part of the United States’ Doing Business in Africa campaign, under which the government has committed billions of dollars to development initiatives in Africa, and has facilitated billions more in U.S.-Africa business deals.
