Robert Sichinga speaks to The Africa-USA International Chamber of Commerce’s Executive Director, Al Washington, about US investment into Africa versus African investment into the USA and the role that the Diaspora can play.

The Africa-USA International Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AfUSA) is a non-profit, business organization established to promote trade, commerce, education, and cultural development between the people and business enterprises of the United States of America and the nation states in Africa.

The AfUSA concept originated in 1987 when Los Angeles’ Mayor Tom Bradley and several academicians and business leaders determined that no realistic forum existed in the USA for the promotion of trade and investment between the United States and Africa. After 5 years of research and development, the Chamber was formed in 1992. In October of 2010 in Los Angeles, Al Washington organized the “First Annual Pan African Global Trade Conference: Unifying Africa and the African Diaspora through International Trade and Commerce.” The follow up to this conference is scheduled for this October 13 – 15, 2011.
