“The President’s trip to Africa this week underscores the critical importance of U.S.-African trade and highlights what business leaders all across the globe see every day – communities, businesses and governments that are linked together in a global economy that increasingly knows no boundaries. That’s why policy choices that are made in Washington – like immigration reform – are so important because they can have a positive economic impact on not just one nation’s economy, but on many. As a company that has been part of the economic and social fabric of Africa since 1928, we and our local bottling partners have seen, firsthand, the great promise and possibility that exist in this dynamic, growing and vibrant continent. We applaud the President on his successful trip to one of the world’s most important emerging economies.”
