In 2009, thirty-six members of the African Nations Diplomatic corps to the United Nations in New York City initiated and founded the
Allied African Nations Chamber of Commerce (AANCC), an organization led by President and Chief Executive Officer Anthony A. L. Adjasse,
a native of the Republic of Benin located in West Africa.
The AANCC was formed to promote sustainable partnerships between the African
member nations and the American business community, as well as individual business owners and corporations. The goal of the AANCC
is to tailor strategic alliances to guide the development process with efficiency
