As the trip wound down, the administration announced the Power Africa program, a $300 billion dollar plan that will leverage public-private partnerships to build energy infrastructure across the continent, beginning with six initial countries. This is certainly good news, as more than two-thirds of people in sub-Saharan Africa have no access to electricity; this, in turn, limits economic growth, as well as health and education services.
