The Africa Business Initiative (ABI) is the leading advocacy-driven initiative representing America’s top companies doing business across Africa. The initiative focuses on market access and trade facilitation, financing, and engagement with the governments of the United States and African nations.
ABI works with the U.S. business community to develop legislative policies that foster foreign direct investment (FDI) in Africa. It also provides tailored guidance to American companies doing business in African nations and introduces U.S. companies to the continent’s vast economic opportunities. Under ABI’s leadership, U.S. corporate representatives involve key members of Congress, the administration, and foreign governments in strategic dialogues to promote private sector engagement.
