From August 4-6 2014, the United States hosted a historic summit on the future of US-Africa relations. This gathering of political and corporate leaders was the first of its kind. It underscored the growing importance of Africa as a strategic partner for global businesses and governments.
The Africa Leaders Summit will likely be considered a pivotal moment for both Africa and the United States. Not only were significant initiatives launched and funding commitments made, but more broadly it reaffirmed Africa’s recent success and positive trajectory. Global investors and business leaders have taken notice of Africa’s rise.Return to Investment Institute
