(PHILADELPHIA) (March 5, 2011) — The African and Caribbean Business Council (ACBC) in association with the People’s Emergency Center (PEC) will host a Trade and Financing Forum on Wednesday, April 6, 2011 at the African Cultural Center on 5000 Springfield Avenue, in West Philadelphia.

The Trade and Financing Forum will address the important issue of accessing capital for the African and Caribbean businesses in Philadelphia. In addition, this forum will discuss the opportunities available in trade and finance through the State, National and International business sector.

The objectives of ACBC are to promote international trade and investments between Africa, the Caribbean and the Greater Philadelphia region; propagate the perspectives of African and Caribbean entrepreneurs with respect to global policies that affect their ability to conduct business; organize global & local training workshops and events as well as engage city, state, and federal government officials, through partnership and advocacy, to make available necessary infrastructures for the development and maintenance of viable African and Caribbean business communities.

The objectives of PEC are to Nurture Families, Strengthen Neighborhoods and Drive Change. Since 2002, PEC has been committed to growing and increasing the vibrancy of the Lancaster Avenue commercial corridor between 38th and 44th Streets. Their strategy for revitalization includes attracting new businesses, helping existing businesses to expand, improving commercial façades and the streetscape, and promoting public safety.

The ACBC President Dr. Azuka Anyiam said “Providing our underserved business community access to capital is an important goal of ACBC and it is for this reason that ACBC is on the march for the establishment of the first African and Caribbean Credit Union in Philadelphia”.
