U.S. - AFRICA BUSINESS SUMMIT 2017
JUNE 13-16, 2017 / WASHINGTON, DC
The U.S. Stake in Africa
A Call for Greater Economic Engagement
The African market is changing. In the last five years, a combination of factors including fluctuating commodity prices, government policy, and unprecedented political events have presented businesses and investors in Africa with significant new challenges as well as new opportunities. Simultaneously, U.S. policy towards the continent is shifting under a new administration.
The Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) will convene business and government leaders at its 11th biennial U.S.-Africa Business Summit in Washington, DC to discuss the challenges of doing business in Africa, proffer actionable solutions for businesses looking to seize opportunities, and advocate to shape effective U.S.-Africa trade and investment policies.
