What's Up with Neal Wolin in Africa?

Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin is in the middle of a trip to Africa (from October 28 - November 5, 2009).

I hear certain people at another government department are real curious about this trip. As in what's this trip really all about, and who is Neal Wolin?

The Deputy Secretary has met, or will meet, with senior government officials in Kigali, Rwanda; Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania; and Pretoria and Johannesburg, South Africa.

The U.S. provides substantial development assistance in these areas through the work of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and through funding for the World Bank and African Development Bank.

The visit marks the first trip to Africa by a senior Treasury official during the Obama Administration.

Wolin did have a problem with an erased bio, which an enterprising EPJ reader was able to rectify:)
