U.S. -Burkina Faso Executive Business Roundtable | Nov 10, 2021

Event Description

The U.S. - Africa Business Center is hosting an Executive Business Roundtable, which will be featuring the President of Burkina Faso H.E. Roch Marc Kabore (virtually) and an in-person Ministerial delegation (Minister of Finance, Minister of Energy, and Minister of Trade and Investment) at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Headquarter. The hybrid meeting presents an opportunity for Burkina Faso's government to present the priorities of their new development plan (PNDS II) to our business community. In addition, a U.S.-Burkina Faso Investment Guide, prepared by our technical partner, Prestige Communication, will be officially launched by President Kabore. A concession agreement signing ceremony between a consortium group, member of the Chamber, and the Ministry of Energy will also be featured during the event. Given space constraints due to Covid-19 social distancing protocols, we will only be able to host a select group in person and priority will be given to member companies on a first-come, first-served basis. Members will be required to indicate in their RSVP whether they will attend in-person or virtually.
