The White House is pleased to announce that the United States will host the first U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, DC on August 5 and 6, 2014.
American President Obama looks forward to welcoming
leaders from across the African continent to the Nation’s Capital to
further strengthen ties with one of the world’s most dynamic and
fastest-growing regions. The Summit will build on the progress made
since the President’s trip to Africa last summer, advance the
Administration’s focus on trade and investment in Africa, and highlight
America’s commitment to Africa’s security, its democratic development,
and its people.
