8th Biennial U.S.-Africa Business Summit

The African continent is among the fastest-growing economic regions in the world, attracting foreign direct investment from businesses small to large from around the globe. According to the Harvard Business Review, Africa and Asia were the only continents to grow during the recent economic recession. Africa’s growth rate increased to nearly 5% in 2010 and is likely to reach 5.2% in 2011. If Africa continues to grow at this pace, consumers will buy $1.4 trillion worth of goods and services in 2020—slightly less than India’s projected $1.7 trillion but more than Russia’s $960 billion. Africa offers a higher return on investment than any other emerging market, according to UN data; and is home to a tremendous market of more than 900 million potential consumers. The continent is seeing increasingly higher levels of investment in industries such as infrastructure, natural resources, telecommunications, agribusiness, health, energy, and others.

What an important time for your business to explore investments in some of the world’s key emerging markets. Partnerships between U.S. and African businesses will be formed, during The Corporate Council on Africa’s (CCA) 2011 U.S.-Africa Business Summit. Businesses of all sizes, representing various industries will be in attendance, eager to find new opportunities to grow and positively impact their bottom line.Join CCA and more than 1,500 of the private and public sector’s top leaders to find out about business and investment opportunities in Africa, the very place where some of today’s major business deals are taking place.

  1. I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be utilizing?
    I’m having some minor security problems with my latest site and I’d like to find something more risk-free.
    Do you have any solutions?

  2. Great work! That is the kind of info that should be shared across the net.
    Shame on the search engines for now not positioning this post higher!
    Come on over and discuss with my site . Thanks =)

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite
    reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider
    worries that they just do not know about. You managed
    to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
