Corporate Council on Africa Issues Priorities and Policy Recommendations for Biden-Harris Administration A vibrant, robust, and mutually beneficial relationship between the United States and Africa underpins the Biden-Harris Administration's Build Back Better objectives of facilitating an inclusive economic recovery, sustaining, and creating jobs for U.S. workers, eradicating COVID-19, and combatting climate change.
Furthermore, active re-engagement with African countries and international organizations committed to Africa's prosperity and development will buttress the United States' commitment to restore alliances and leadership multilaterally.
We encourage the Administration to see Africa as full of opportunity and ready for mutually beneficial partnership
The Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) welcomes the Biden-Harris Administration's appeal to African Leaders to rebuild relationships premised on equal partnership and mutual trust, respect, and prosperity. We commend President Biden for making his commitment to reengage the African Union early in his Presidency.
The President's remarks before the 34th Meeting of the African Union are a welcome tonal and policy shift for U.S.-Africa relations. CCA supports the Administration's early signs of pursuing an active Africa strategy that matches the continent's strategic importance for the U.S. in achieving its global economic and security objectives.
CCA looks forward to engaging with the Biden-Harris Administration to develop and implement a comprehensive U.S. strategy for Africa that will support inclusive, equitable, and sustainable economies across the continent and facilitate more U.S. exports and middle-class jobs in the United States.
We encourage the Administration to see Africa as we see it: a continent full of opportunity and ready – now more than ever – for mutually beneficial partnership on equal footing with the United States.

At the end of April 2021, the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture ceases public hearings. As matters currently stand, South Africa will not get to see a member of the family at the heart of corruption allegations, the Guptas, give testimony. This while their ally, former president Jacob Zuma faces jail time as he continues to resist his own appearance in violation of a Constitutional Court order, writes Jessica Bezuidenhout for Daily Maverick.
The Gupta family immigrated to South Africa in the 1990s and managed to expand their business interests through their alleged close ties with Zuma. The former president is accused of having "sold executive power" to the controversial family, whose ties to high-ranking officials have been examined in the Zondo Commission's probe into alleged state capture.
