Hudson Institute will host Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Tibor Nagy for a discussion on the future of U.S.-Africa relations. Ambassador Nagy will offer keynote remarks on the Trump administration’s new Africa Strategy, which seeks to advance prosperity, security, and stability on a continent projected to double in population by 2050, with the majority under the age of 25. The ambassador will then join Hudson President Ken Weinstein for a one-on-one discussion on the complex nature of U.S. engagement with Africa and the challenges and opportunities ahead for U.S.-Africa relations. The event will conclude with a panel moderated by Hudson Fellow Blaise Misztal. Panelists will focus on the intersection of political change and geopolitical competition in Africa.

Ambassador Nagy has had a distinguished career of public service. He previously served as Ambassador to Ethiopia (1999-2002) and Guinea (1996-1999), and as Deputy Chief of Mission to Nigeria (1993-1995), Cameroon (1990-1993), and Togo (1987-1990). The ambassador also served in Zambia and the Seychelles. During his tenure at the State Department, Ambassador Nagy received numerous awards in recognition of his humanitarian and diplomatic efforts. After his retirement from the Foreign Service, he became Vice Provost for International Affairs at Texas Tech University (2003-2018) until his appointment as Assistant Secretary for African Affairs.
