Since the last U.S.-Africa Business Summit in 2017, the U.S. administration and African governments have demonstrated a renewed commitment to developing business-friendly initiatives and policies that foster greater economic engagement. In the same year, U.S businesses made more foreign direct investments (FDI) in Africa than their counterparts from any other country, with a 43% increase in FDI projects. Given the increasing participation of international and continental actors, the African market is becoming more competitive and complex. The U.S. private sector must further leverage its strengths and resources to continue to serve as a strong and preferred investment partner on the continent.
Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) and the Government of Mozambique will convene business and government leaders for the 12th U.S.-Africa Business Summit on June 18-21,2019 in Maputo, Mozambique. The Summit serves as a platform for U.S. and African private sector and government representatives to engage on key sectors including agribusiness, energy, health, infrastructure, trade facilitation, ICT and finance; network with key private sector and government decision makers; explore new business opportunities and meet potential business partners; and advocate to shape effective U.S.-Africa trade and investment policies.
