About CCA's Power Africa & Trade Africa Programs

The Corporate Council on Africa’s (CCA) Power Africa and Trade Africa programs were established as part of a cooperative agreement between CCA and The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support the Obama Administration’s initiatives to increase regional trade in East Africa and energy access in sub-Saharan Africa. The programs include a web portal that serves as a platform to help coordinate private sector participation in, and knowledge of both initiatives. It is a hub for information sharing – featuring tender opportunities, investment and trade resources and key information about the Power Africa and Trade Africa initiatives.

CCA’s Power Africa and Trade Africa programs also provide critical links between the public and private sectors by convening focused events and meetings such as our Power Working Groups, Trade Facilitation Working Groups and private sector consultations. These meetings highlight trends, investment opportunities, and seek to address challenges that businesses face in Africa's power sector and the East African region.

CCA is the only U.S. business association focused on connecting business interests in Africa. Over the past 20 years, CCA has served as a neutral, trusted intermediary association connecting its members with key government and business leaders. CCA continues to play a vital role in connecting businesses of all sizes and sectors, seeking to partner and establish or expand their presence in Africa.
