The Continental Africa Chamber of Commerce, USA (CACC) was founded by the late Dr. Charles Chukwuma Okolie in 1989 in Washington, D.C. Dr. Okolie was born on August 16th, 1943 in Udi, Enugu State, Nigeria. He practiced law in Chicago, IL. He was also National Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Continental Africa Chamber of Commerce, USA, and also served as the 1st President of the CACC from 1989 until his death on September 28, 1995. Dr. Okolie was succeeded as CACC President by David Olupitan, who presided over the CACC until 2003. David Olupitan was succeeded as President by Ganiyu Ademola Dada, now serving as the 3rd President of the Continental Africa Chamber of Commerce, USA.

The underlying principles upon which Continental Africa Chamber of Commerce, USA (CACC) was organized grew out of a meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Organization of African Unity in 1969. Incorporated in 1981, CACC is one of the oldest African Chambers of Commerce in the United States. We are a non-political, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization working in the best interest of U.S. - Africa relations. Our primary focus is to increase bi-lateral trade, investment and joint ventures between Africa and the United States. This is accomplished by working with a broad network of U.S. agencies, companies and individuals who are either currently doing business in or with Africa or are interested in the prospect of doing so.

Are you interested in exploring trade and investment opportunities between Africa and the world to create wealth through the flow business, then the CACC is the organization for you.
