Invest in Africa

A brand new title published on behalf of the African Union, Invest in Africa 2011, was launched during the eighth biennial US-Africa Business Summit held in Washington from 5-7 October. Featuring forewords from Dr Jean Ping, Chairman of the African Union Commission, and Stephen Hayes, President & CEO of the Corporate Council on Africa, the publication explains and elucidates the important role of the AU and the work it undertakes, providing expert analysis of its initiatives on key topics such as regional integration and foreign direct investment.

The journal also looks at the vital partnerships that the AU has created with the EU, South America and China, among others. Energy, water, agriculture, transportation, education, healthcare and ITC are just a few of the industry sectors spanning the entire African region that are covered in detail and brought into focus in a series of authoritatively written articles.

Speaking at the launch, Ambassador Amina Ali, permanent representative of the AU mission to the US, said that she was delighted with the publication and the successful collaboration with Newsdesk Media Inc, Newsdesk Media Group’s US operation. “This important and informative work presents to the world a detailed and meticulously researched record of the work of the African Union, presenting complex information in an appealing and attractive format,” she concluded.
