The Corporate Council on Africa (CCA), with the support of leading U.S. and African corporations, and senior level representatives from American and African government agencies, will host its 4th U.S. – Africa Infrastructure Conference at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C., April 27 – 29, 2010.
Themed “Building Dynamic Growth in Africa,” this year’s conference will focus on key sectors ripe for U.S. investment, including information and communication technology, alternative energy, and human security. The effects of climate change on Africa will also be a focus. Another primary focus will be project financing. During the conference, company representatives will have the opportunity to interact with funding entities, and learn about available instruments for project finance in the specially designed “Deal Room.”
“CCA’s U.S. – Africa Infrastructure Conference has an exceptional record of attracting key decision makers and featuring informative and thought-provoking sessions,” said Stephen Hayes, president and CEO of CCA. “This year’s conference will provide global business and government leaders with the latest blueprint on infrastructure investment return with some of Africa’s most promising sectors.”
Immediately following the World Bank spring meetings, the three-day conference will include industry-specific sessions, networking opportunities, and a special dinner in honor of the African ministers of finance and central bank governors. The sessions will be led by U.S. and African business and government leaders whose expertise stems from their own successful engagements and ongoing ventures in Africa.
