There was a video circulating on Facebook recently about the images of Africa that the media tends to bypass: images of thriving, modern cities; stunning architecture; and successful businesses. No doubt the African continent faces its share of challenges, but that video strikes a chord because Africa is also rich in promise, opportunity, growth, and excitement. I saw that side of Africa in spring 2014, when I joined US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker’s trade mission to Ghana and Nigeria. There, I joined 19 other delegates from US businesses in panel discussions and meetings focused on Africa’s energy sector.
