WASHINGTON, DC -- AFRICOM's civilian and military deputies speak February 5, 2008, to the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA), which works closely with governments, multilateral groups and business to improve the African continent's trade and investment climate, and to raise the profile of Africa in the U.S. business community. The two deputies are Ambassador Mary Carlin Yates, AFRICOM's deputy to the commander for civil-military affairs, and Vice Admiral Robert T. Moeller, deputy to the commander for military operations. The theme of the CCA luncheon was "A Look at U.S. Initiatives in Africa and Their Effect on U.S. Business", highlighting both AFRICOM and the Millennium Challenge Corporation. Discussions addressed potential roles for AFRICOM in public-private partnerships for African economic development. The Millennium Challenge Corporation is a U.S. government corporation that works with some of the nation's poorest countries, based on the principle that financial aid is most effective when it reinforces good governance, economic freedom and investment in people.
