The Moroccan American Network will host its Third CEO Summit focusing on small business opportunities from the U.S. to Africa, on May 10, 2018, at the historical National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Entitled “Shaping the Future of Africa: Challenges and Prospects,” CEO Summit 3 will present panel discussions and facilitate the exchange of ideas focusing on growing small business and investment opportunities on the continent of Africa.
The Network is honoured to have U.S. Congressman Don S. Beyer, Jr. (D-VA) and the Honorable Robert White, Councilman-at-Large for the D.C. government as special guest speakers, along with His Excellency Carlos Dos Santos, Ambassador to the U.S. from the Republic of Mozambique, and His Excellency, David Newman, Ambassador from Botswana, as Guests of Honour. The conference will be attended by members of the Congressional Black Caucus, the U.S. Black Chamber of Commerce, think tank experts, academics, and business leaders.
The main objective of the CEO Summit 3 is to share ideas and highlight the resources that are available to help small businesses succeed both in the U.S., through the GSA and SBA, as well as in Africa, and to focus on international business opportunities.
“The summit is designed especially to expand opportunities for conducting business in Africa,” according to Mohamed El Hajjam, CEO of AV Actions Inc. and President of the Moroccan American Network. “Specifically, we want to highlight opportunities for greater collaboration and exchange of ideas, promoting foreign investment and economic growth,” he said. “We will be engaging in dialogue and exchange of ideas for macro-opportunities, such as investments, as well as micro-opportunities, in areas such as infrastructure and health, and creating an environment where business leaders can meet other business leaders.”
“The summit will also highlight women’s economic empowerment in Africa,” said American attorney and MAN General Counsel Elisabeth Myers. “Leila Ndiaye, the newly appointed Executive Director of the Initiative for Global Development, will be featured on our Africa panel.”
The Moroccan American Network is a network of individuals dedicated to creating opportunities for small business. “Through our business, media, and cultural events, we expand business networks,” said El Hajjam. “The CEO Summit is an excellent opportunity to meet others who face the same challenges and to learn from the know-how of successful business people and experts in the field.”
The conference is presented by the Moroccan American Network, and sponsored by AV Actions Inc., Sanitas International, and Myers Energy International.
