The Corporate Council on Africa has said it plans to advance trade, investment and business engagement between the United States and Nigeria.
In a statement, it said that some of Nigeria’s wealthiest businessmen shared their current business objectives and expansion efforts across Africa with the CCA.
The statement said, the President and Chief Executive Officer, African Media Agency/ CCA, Ms Florizelle Liser, and West Africa Director, CCA, Mr Ekenem Isichei, met with CCA board members, Mr Aliko Dangote and Mr Jim Ovia, and invited them to speak at the upcoming US-Africa business summit in June in Maputo, Mozambique.
Part of the statement read, “Liser met with key stakeholders in the public and private sectors during her recent visit to Kenya and Nigeria.
“This was part of the ongoing effort to promote the upcoming US-Africa business summit in Maputo, Mozambique and advance trade, investment and business engagement between the United States and Nigeria.”
It stated that the CCA, a Washington DC-based organisation, is a US business association focused solely on connecting business interests between the United States and Africa.
“CCA uniquely represents a broad cross-section of member companies from small and medium-size businesses to multinationals as well as US and African firms,” the statement read.
