The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has launched a new U.S.-Angola Working Group, a collaboration between the Chamber's U.S.-Africa Business Center and AmCham Angola. The U.S.-Angola Working Group – the product of multiple years of effort by the Chamber and its partners – is a private sector-led platform to advance the business community's priorities for U.S.-Angola engagement.
Its formation reflects the positive trajectory of Angola's economic reforms, as well as growing corporate interest in the country.
The working group will be chaired by Mr Mamadou M. Beye, Chevron's General manager, Corporate Affairs, Middle East, Africa and South America.
"The U.S. Chamber, in collaboration with AmCham Angola and our member companies, have been supportive of the efforts laid out by President João Lourenço to tackle corruption, improve the business climate and diversify the economy, said Scott Eisner, President, U.S.-Africa Business Center and Senior Vice President for Africa, U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "The launch of the U.S.-Angola Working Group is the result of our active engagement over the past two years and will cement Angola in the minds of the U.S. private sector as a favorable investment destination as the country embarks on its post-pandemic economic recovery."
