The PAC engages in two separate lines of activity in order to achieve its singular mission and vision, namely, policy advocacy and the economic empowerment.
On the issue of policy advocacy, the PAC actively lobbies both national governments and regional institutions as well as other multilateral organizations to adopt and implement well-considered socio-economic development, political and economic governance policies and strategies which improve living standards directly.
Some of the issues addressed by the PAC in consultation with African governments and other stakeholders include:
- Food Security
- Energy Independence
- Sustainability and Natural Resource Management
- Business and Entrepreneurship
- Diaspora Engagement
The PAC promotes sustainable business ventures and investments within Africa and regions of the Diaspora, while serving as a neutral, trusted intermediary connecting its member firms with the essential government and business leaders they need to succeed.
PAC Expert Network
The Pan-African Council’s Expert Network serves as an information brokerage and expert connection service that offers access to a proprietary network of subject matter experts in African and global markets to companies and investors seeking real-time, granular business insights.
Access to Capital
Securing the requisite funding and expertise for projects and programs that can further this objective and ensuring that these projects and programs are implemented for the best possible effect.
Business and Entrepreneurial Development
In recent years, Africa has been redefining its place in the global economy. It is doing so in an age of unprecedented growth in scientific and technical knowledge. Unlike its predecessors who had to make do with limited technical knowledge, Africa’s challenge is how to manage abundance. African countries are as diverse in culture as they are differentiated in their political heritage. Most of them are historically been associated with natural resources and raw materials. Most of the economies have either stagnated or decline. A few have prospered but their lessons are not easy to extend to others. There is growing recognition, however, that Africa can only strengthen its economic performance through considerable investment and use of new knowledge.
PAC believes that Africa’s future success depends upon the ability of its entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists, investors and business people to create prosperity.
PAC Business and Entrepreneurial programs are designed to bring together potential business partners and raise Africa’s investment profile in the world by developing critical contacts and business relationships and providing a forum for the exchange of information and ideas.
