Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) is delighted to host Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Akunna Cook and Prosper Africa Acting Chief Operating Officer Leslie Marbury who just returned from Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, and Namibia as part of the first in a series of Prosper Africa Economic Diplomacy tours led by the U.S. Department of State.


Their visit focused on increasing U.S. exports to and investment in the creative industries, ICT and digital technologies, infrastructure, and energy. The delegation engaged with entrepreneurs, business leaders, and government officials to remove barriers to U.S. trade and investment, to drive transactions forward, and to promote market opportunities.


The U.S. government officials will brief the audience on their trip, highlighting key findings and opportunities to deepen U.S. and Africa economic ties in these sectors.
