The United States-Africa Business Summit is expected to take place in Dallas, Texas, USA from May 6 to 9 this year, the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) has announced.
The CCA says the summit will be held under the theme ‘US-Africa Business: Partnering for sustainable success’ and will focus on US-Africa trade, investment, and commercial engagement and also celebrate the 20th anniversary of Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).
Has confirmed attendance: Chakwera
Reads the CCA statement: “Texas hosts the largest African diaspora population of any state in the United States.
“And Dallas, as the location of headquarters and major business operations for a large number of Fortune 1 000 firms, is the ideal location to facilitate the exchange of ideas and strategies that will shape the future of US-Africa business relations.”
According to a statement, three African heads of State, namely President Mokgweetsi Masisi of Botswana, President Faure Gnassingbé of the Republic of Togo and President Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi have so far confirmed their participation at the summit.
Chakwera last attended the summit in December 2022 where he stated in social media platforms that Malawi fostered new trade and investment bonds.
This year, CCA will partner with the MCC to celebrate its 20th anniversary and highlight MCC’s $10.4 billion (about K18 trillion) US Government investment in infrastructure across at least 24 African countries, including Malawi.
