Pan African Global
Trade and Investment Conference (PAGTIC)
The conference is an important first step in the establishment of a U.S. based public/private effort associated with international trade and commerce and current business opportunities in Africa and the Caribbean.
We also use the conference to present and discuss African Diaspora Mobilization Initiatives currently being developed by the African Union, the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Sixth Region African Diaspora Caucus. We will also highlight the potential for providing viable opportunities for bilateral trade, investment and commerce between Africa, the United States and the African Diaspora.

Why Trade Matters?
To move beyond the glass ceiling in the US markets, black owned and operated businesses must consider that 95% of their potential new customer base can be found in international markets. Africa has seven (7) of the fastest growing economies in the world, with the youngest workforce and a medium age of 17 years old. Africa is rich in minerals, natural resources and has 80% of the worlds arable land for agriculture. Forging trade relationships with Africa makes sense and they are welcoming us to the table.
There are 55 countries on the continent of Africa where there are opportunities in every imaginable industry sector. They have the natural resources, we have the talent, experience, and investments to make an impact on the economy and lives of millions of continental Africans and Africans in the Diaspora. Whether it is products or services, global trading with Africa should be an option for your companies growth and expansion.
