U.S.-Africa Business Summit

The U.S.-Africa Business Summit, the Corporate Council on Africa’s (CCA) premier annual event, stands as a vital platform for deepening U.S.-Africa business ties across key sectors including agribusiness, energy, health, infrastructure, trade facilitation, ICT, and finance. This high-level summit fosters unparalleled networking opportunities, facilitating meetings between U.S. and African private sector executives, government representatives, investors, and entrepreneurs. Over 30 years, the Summit has become a crucible for forging partnerships, exploring new business avenues, and shaping policies that promote robust U.S.-Africa trade and investment relationships. Historically attracting an average of 1,000 attendees from 40 countries, including 46 Heads of State since its inception, the Summit is a testament to the dynamic and evolving U.S.-Africa economic landscape.

Since the inaugural Summit in 1997, CCA has successfully convened stakeholders from across the globe to discuss challenges, identify solutions, and expand investments between the U.S. and Africa. With the 2023 edition marking the fifth Summit hosted on the African continent in Botswana, the event continues to embody the spirit of collaboration and mutual growth. The upcoming 16th U.S.-Africa Business Summit, scheduled for May 6-9, 2024, in Dallas, Texas, promises to be a landmark event under the theme 'U.S.-Africa Business: Partnering for Sustainable Success.' With over 1,500 attendees expected, including Heads of State, international investors, and government officials, the Summit aims to catalyze sustainable business partnerships between the U.S. and Africa, leveraging four days of strategic dialogues and networking.
