The Washington-based Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) will host the US-Africa Business Summit in July in partnership with the government of Botswana on July 11-14 in Gaborone, Botswana, at the Royal Aria Convention Centre.
The Summit will bring together more than 1 000 American and African public and private sector participants, including African heads of state, US and African ministers and senior government officials, private sector executives and entrepreneurs, international investors, and multilateral stakeholders.
Seven southern African countries’ presidents will attend: Botswana, Eswatini (represented by King Mswati III), Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Lesotho.
The US-Africa Business Summit is referred to as the largest and most influential American conference on doing business and investing in Africa.
This year’s event is themed “Enhancing Africa’s Value in Global Value Chains” and will explore a renewed commitment by both public and private sector stakeholders to building stronger US-Africa trade, investment, and commercial ties in the face of unprecedented health and economic challenges.
“Our objective is to build on the momentum of the successful December 2022 US-Africa Leaders’ Summit and Business Forum, providing the opportunity to once again connect government and private sector decision-makers who are advancing the American and African trade, investment, and business relationship,” a notification stated.
