Embassy Priorities

Cabo Verde is a democratic and development success story, as well as an important partner for the United States. In addition to the overriding goal of protecting and safeguarding the welfare of American Citizens, the U.S. Embassy in Cabo Verde pursues two primary interest aims:

  1. Combating transnational crime through strengthened maritime security and rule of law; and
  2. Supporting Cabo Verde’s transition from donor dependence to investment and trade.
