How can the Obama administration ensure a successful outcome for the first U.S.-Africa Summit, which will take place in early August? Former U.S. Ambassador Robin Sanders wants President Obama to hold meetings with counteparts from each of Africa's five regions for more intimate discussions than can happen at larger sessions. Toby Moffett and Aubrey Hruby say American officials and companies should revisit their business approach when dealing with Africa governments and build mutually beneficial partnerships.
