AF-USA was founded by a diverse group of people who believe in the natural endowments and the economic potentials of Africa. The Summit examines business opportunities that exist in Africa and how Midwest companies can expand their businesses by taking advantage of Africa’s rapid growth. AF-USA is committed to helping Africans living in Greater Cincinnati adjust to their new home. Through dialogue mutual understanding can be built between the inhabitants of Greater Cincinnati and the African community.
