US President Joe Biden sought to show the United States’ commitment to Africa by hosting his Angolan counterpart, João Lourenço, a meeting that highlighted the former’s unfulfilled commitment to visit the continent.

Biden has worked to revitalize ties between the United States and Africa to counter the growing influence of China and Russia. Yet African leaders still awaiting a presidential trip fear the continent could once again be relegated to second place to other geopolitical priorities.

“America is all in on Africa,” Biden said Thursday during his White House meeting with Lourenço, touting projects to help connect Angola to the global economy, boost clean energy and boost agricultural exports.
