At least nine Heads of State are confirmed to attend the 12th Unites States-Africa Business Summit in Maputo, Mozambique, a high-profile event that will run from June 18th to June 21st, 2019.
The Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) has announced that King Mswati III, Kingdom of Eswatini; Filipe Nyusi, President of Mozambique; Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda; Hage Geingob, President of Namibia; Uhuru Kenyatta, President of Kenya; José Mário Vaz, President of Guinea-Bissau; Peter Mutharika, President of Malawi; Edgar Lungu, President of Zambia; and Mokgweetsi Masisi, President of Botswana are scheduled to attend the event.
The CCA is a business association focused solely on connecting business interests between the United States and Africa.
As such, the Summit will bring together more than 1,000 leading US and African private sector executives, international investors, senior government officials and multilateral stakeholders.
Under the theme ‘Advancing a Resilient and Sustainable Partnership’, CCA’s 2019 Summit will engage key US and African government officials and decision makers to discuss their strategies, vision and initiatives to facilitate increased business and investment.
The Summit will provide several opportunities for business executives to meet heads-of-state, ministers and high-level US and African government decision makers to advocate for their business interests.
Since its inception in 1997, the Summit has been considered an essential conference for United States and African private sector executives, government officials and multilateral stakeholders interested in doing business in Africa.
In line with this and as part of its mandate, CCA uniquely represents a broad cross section of member companies from small and medium size businesses to multinationals as well as US and African firms.
The Summit will therefore serve as a platform for businesses to hear from leading US and African industry experts on best practices in sectors including agribusiness, energy, health, infrastructure, ICT and finance.
It will help to explore new business and investment opportunities, meet and network with potential business partners and obtain real-time leads; and advocate to shape effective US-Africa trade and investment policies.
