Africa Finance Corporation Appoints Grant T. Harris as Independent Director

Africa Finance Corporation announced the appointment of Grant T. Harris as an Independent Director. He has extensive experience and contacts in Africa, having worked in a variety of senior roles advising on continental affairs. He also brings a strong business and legal background as well as a network of contacts with entities interested in doing business with the continent.

As Special Assistant to President Obama and Senior Director for African Affairs, he was the primary lead in crafting U.S. policy toward sub-Saharan Africa. Mr. Harris was particularly instrumental in institutionalising trade and investment as a key pillar of U.S. policy toward Africa, including by launching and coordinating the 'Doing Business in Africa' campaign to increase U.S. trade and investment. Mr. Harris was also the primary architect of the highly successful US-Africa Leaders Summit, which President Obama hosted in Washington, D.C., in August 2014, and which generated $37 billion in commitments to increase investment, trade, and development throughout Africa.
