GCCA to conduct Cold Chain Assessment in Africa as part of Obama initiative
In a press release from the White House, the Global Cold Chain Alliance is named for participating in the president's initiative on strengthening trade and investment ties in Africa. According to the release, "President Obama has prioritized promoting U.S. trade with and investment in Africa, building Africa's trade capacity, and extending preferential access to the U.S. market for African products." The president has assembled an Advisory Council for the Doing Business in Africa campaign to identify opportunities for trade and investment in Africa, which is "home to nine of the 20 fastest-growing economies in the world." The cold chain was specifically recognized as an area for development. GCCA will be working with the U.S. Department of Commerce to launch the Cold Chain Assessment Initiative in October as part of the president's initiative. Earlier in 2015, GCCA President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch addressed the need for cold chain improvements in East Africa at a roundtable alongside United States trade officials and trade ministers from the East African Community.More
