Prosper Africa Business Development Forum

The U.S. Small Business Administration and the Côte d’Ivoire Economic Promotion Office will host the first Prosper Africa Business Development Forum in Philadelphia with event partner The African and Caribbean Business Council of Greater Philadelphia (ACBC).

To deepen regional trading relationships, Côte d’Ivoire Economic Promotion Service will lead a delegation of businesses to Philadelphia. The delegation seeks American business partners for work in sectors including Health Care, Agriculture, Manufacturing, Education, Energy, and building the country’s Infrastructure. In addition, there is the opportunity for U.S. companies to compete for projects funded by Millennium Challenge Corporation, USAID and other U.S. Government Agencies.

If you are asking “Where to get started, what you should do, and where to go next” and want to learn about exciting opportunities in West Africa, join us for presentations and one-on-one meetings with Côte d’Ivoire businesses to explore international business opportunities.

Featured speakers:

  • the U.S. Small Business Administration;
  • Côte d’Ivoire Government and agencies, including the Côte d’Ivoire Economic Promotion Office in the USA
  • the U.S. Prosper Africa Secretariat;
  • other U.S. Government agencies offering services and programs related to trade and investment.
