"According to the World Bank, U.S. controls 40% of global wealth and remains an important trade partner for Africa. With manufacturing steadily shifting to the region, the timing is right for U.S. business leaders to develop effective strategies towards Africa; particularly in the context of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) and for Africa's exporters to maximize the African Growth & Opportunity Act (AGOA). The Trade with Africa Business Summit presents an effective platform to facilitate trade discussions and provides a front row seat to business leaders looking to engage, build partnerships as well as educate themselves on the growing economic impact Africa is having on the global market," said Toyin Umesiri, CEO Nazaru LLC. and Founder of the Trade with Africa Business Summit.
This year's event positions the Chicago Metropolitan area and the State of Illinois as a favorable destination for Africa's business & political leaders looking to create new trade partnerships in the U.S. and would be held at the McDonald's Hamburger University – Oak Brook on August 1st and 2nd with Press Conference and VIP reception scheduled for July 31st. The event would be marked with powered side-line meetings, public speeches, panel discussions, workshops and direct engagement between investors and government representatives.
Confirmed speakers include:
"Africa offers new markets for U.S. made products. Similarly, U.S. serves as an untapped market under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) for authentic African products (raw and manufactured)
