Africa is the world’s next economic miracle and this is the time for wise investors to look in the direction of the continent, organisers of the forthcoming US–African Exim Investment Forum 2014 have said.

The forum, scheduled to hold at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington D.C. (923 16th Street NW, Washington D.C. 20006) April 25-26, “provides a platform to showcase African trade and investment offerings, bring investors and projects together, and build new business partnerships between the US and Africa markets via Export-Import promotions,” said the organisers, the UK-based African Leadership magazine.

The forum, which has as theme ‘Africa Rising: Innovation, Growth and Competitiveness in the new frontier’, focuses on strengthening linkages into African economies as a means to promote new investment. The investment forum shall be holding on the margins of the annual US EXIM Conference.

Speaking, the Publisher of African Leadership magazine, Dr. Ken Giami, said in a statement sent to News Express: “Africa’s population is expected to rise to 2 billion people by the year 2050. This represents amazing opportunities for the savvy investor. We are talking about 2 billion people hungry for products – goods and services. Africa is not just the next economic miracle, but the ultimate game changer for business people and investors keen on expanding their economic horizon. And I would make haste to say that investment opportunities are never lost, you either take advantage of it or your competitors will. The Asians have been in Africa for years now and are reaping huge benefits. We invite American business people to dive in or lose the opportunity forever.”

Dr. Giami disclosed that highlights of the forum shall be strategic Exploratory Investment meetings with a US state Governor and senior US Government and Policy officials, Institutional Investment groupings, the US Business Community and key business leaders/investors. The forum shall be rounded up with the US-Africa Business Leadership Awards 2014 instituted to shine the spotlight on business best practices on the continent and to reward impact, innovations and outstanding achievers in Africa’s private sector, as well as US-Africa business engagements.
