Africa – a continent of unlimited opportunity

Posted on September 25, 2009 with No Comments

My Vice President of Business Development and I are heading out this Sunday, Sept 27th through October 1st, to spend a week in Washington D.C. attending the Corporate Council on Africa’s 2009 Business Summit. I personally feel that the African continent holds the greatest potential as a leading foreign investment destination for American businesses.

This summit will allow CMSS to obtain the latest trade and investment opportunities in Africa’s most promising sectors including power, financing, infrastructure, extractive industries, and security stabilization. The projection is for more than 2000 key African and U.S. private sector and government representatives.

From working in our Tripoli offices on demining and construction opportunities to going on safari in South Africa, Africa always provides a fun and fascinating experience. Having spent a lot of time on the African continent -  particularly Ethiopia, where we adopted our two youngest children, I have come to the realization that there is just not a place on earth with the vitality and possibilities to offer.
