U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit:

On January 21st, the White House announced plans to host the first U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, DC, on August 5th and 6th. The Summit will build on the progress made since the President’s trip to Africa in summer 2013 and will focus on increasing trade and investment in Africa, as well as enhancing the U.S. commitment to Africa’s security and democratic development. Invitees will include African leaders in good standing with the U.S. and nations that are not currently suspended by the African Union (AU). At the moment, seven African nations will be excluded from the Summit, including Egypt, the Central African Republic (CAR), Madagascar, and Guinea-Bissau, which have been suspended from the AU, and Eritrea, Sudan, and Zimbabwe, countries that are subject to U.S. or United Nations (U.N.) sanctions.
