Washington, DC — The Corporate Council on Africa, in partnership with the U.N. Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), presents the U.S.-Africa Business and Investment Forum in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on January 30, 2018.

The Forum will be held on the margins of the African Union (AU) Summit, and will bring together African and U.S. public and private sector leaders to discuss specific benchmarks and measures that can be implemented to support private-sector led growth in Africa.

During the day-long Forum, four high level roundtables will be held to enable African and U.S. private sector executives to engage in conversations and share insights with African Heads of State, Ministers, senior USG officials, representatives of multilateral institutions and other stakeholders.   The roundtables on trade and diversification, energy, agribusiness, and health will ensure that the private sector voice and views are heard by leaders and key stakeholders, and that both African and U.S. policies address in concrete ways the day-to-day doing business challenges faced by the private sector operating in Africa.

In addition to providing a platform for a high-level public-private sector dialogue, the objectives of the Forum are to increase opportunities for business partnerships, secure commitments to as well as track the adoption of business-friendly policies, and showcase countries and policies that are contributing to an enabling environment for enhanced African regional and global trade and investment, including with the United States.
