President Obama is welcoming leaders from all across Africa to Washington, DC for the U.S. African Leaders Summit 2014. These leaders will be visiting from Africa’s 54 nations. This summit will hold a variety of diplomatic meetings and will also provide the African leaders with networking to the members of Congress and many private sector executives. President Obama will also be holding a state dinner on the White House Lawn for the members of this summit.
Our historic Washington, DC Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located a short distance away from Embassy Row and the White House where many of the visiting leaders will be located. The summit will be an historic event with the theme being “Investing in the Next Generation”, which will focus on how important growth, opportunities, and the environment is on the next generation. President Obama invited the African heads of state or government to this summit to discuss topics like expanding trade and investment ties, engaging young Africans leaders, promoting inclusive sustainable development and much more which will in turn center on how to encourage the progress in key areas in the future of Africa’s continent.
President Obama quotes “I do not see the countries and people of Africa as a world apart; I see Africa as a fundamental part of our interconnected world – partners with America on behalf of the future we want for all of our children. That partnership must be grounded in mutual responsibility and mutual respect’.” The depth of the United States’ commitment to the African Continent will surely show during this meeting. We hope to see some of you here for this Leaders Summit showing your support!
