Meeting and networking with such honoroable African Ambassadors to the U.S and other honorable dignitaries meant so much to the Miss Africa Washington #State #Pageant Organization. Her majesty queen Shina attending the 19th #Annual Africa Day Business Forum Lots of thanks to Peter Gishuru President/CEO for giving us the opportunity to be part of such a instructive conference. We really appreciate it. Based in Seattle, the African Chamber of Commerce of the #Pacific #Northwest is here, “to promote an environment for direct trade and business prosperity between Africa and the Pacific Northwest region in the United States. ACCPNW also supports and counsels African Immigrant business owners and provides information and resources to nonprofit/NGO organizations working in Africa.” So much is needed in order to get our continent moving forward and organizations like the ACCPNW is here to get the work started by facilitating the trade between the two continents.
