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 begin to shape U.S.-Africa trade and investment policies.

The theme for the 2017 U.S.-Africa Business Summit is The U.S. Stake in Africa: A Call for Greater Economic Engagement. This overarching theme is explored through three main topics on each day:

1. Navigating the African Market
2. Africa in a Globalizing Economy
3. Regional Integration and the Impact on Trade and Investment
