2022 U.S.-Africa Business Summit

Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) will organize the next edition of the U.S -Africa Business Summit on July 19 – 22, 2022 in Marrakech, Morocco. The Summit will build on the momentum of last year’s virtual Summit, which focused on the unique opportunity for the new U.S. Administration and its African partners to reset and redefine their relationship as they work together to shape the path for economic recovery needed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. After 2 years, CCA will return to the continent this July for the 14th iteration of its flagship conference.


The U.S.-Africa Business Summit serves as a platform for African and U.S. private sector and government representatives to engage on key sectors including agribusiness, energy, health, infrastructure, trade facilitation, ICT and finance. Summit participants can network with key private sector and government officials, explore new business opportunities, meet potential business partners, and forge new business deals. The Summit also serves as an opportunity to shape and advocate for effective U.S.-Africa trade and investment policies.  Over the last 23 years, CCA has hosted more than 50 U.S. and African Heads of State and over 15,000 participants at its Summits. This year’s Summit – themed “Building Forward Together” – will explore the U.S. and African public and private sectors’ renewed commitment to building stronger trade and investment ties during unprecedented health and economic challenges.
