Promoting Bilateral Trade and Investment Between the Pacific Northwest and Africa
The mission of the African Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest is 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.
By increasing trade and investment relationships between the PNW and Africa, the ACCPNW will thereby increase job opportunities at home and abroad. We aim to become a focal resources for all businesses in the Pacific Northwest or in Africa that are interested in doing business with one another.
