Obstacles to Doing Business in Africa to be Focus of Upcoming Meeting
The President’s Advisory Council on Doing Business in Africa will hold the final meeting of its term Sept. 26 to deliberate and consider adopting a report containing recommendations to the president on actions the federal government could take to mitigate obstacles that U.S. companies face in doing business in Africa. These recommendations may include updates to those adopted in April for Ethiopia, Kenya, Côte d’Ivoire, and Ghana; new recommendations that focus on those or other African countries; and recommendations that apply to the African region broadly. The council will also discuss findings from its recent fact-finding trip to Ethiopia, Kenya, Côte d’Ivoire, and Ghana, countries identified as holding particular promise for business opportunities for U.S. companies.
The meeting will be broadcast via live webcast here. Written statements for consideration at this meeting are due by Sept. 19.
