The International Affairs Policy Committee considers policies that encourage foreign investment such as trade agreements and export-import promotion. The committee promotes the participation of African Americans in the global economy. This committee seeks to accomplish the following: (1) strengthen relationships with trading partners throughout the world by focusing on the exchange of cultural education, best business practices, and financial resources; and (2) develop broader foreign policy perspectives that will address human rights, economic development, health, environmental stewardship, peace, and democracy, primarily as they relate to Africa and the African Diaspora.
