市長表示，休斯敦是全美各市和非洲交往最密切的城市， 並且有大量來自非洲之居民， 長久以來我們非常重視和非洲各國之交流 ，非洲帶來的文化政经關係對我們影響非常大。
Africa Day Is Coming
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has invited all the African ambassadors in Washington, D.C. to celebrate Houston Africa Day.
As the letter of invitation pointed out, Houston is Africa’s largest U.S. trade partner and Houston is home to a large number of African residents. This event will help honor the many African communities in Houston to help the greater Houston community connect with the diverse African communities and to raise awareness about the importance of intercultural dialogue, diversity and inclusion.
Africa Day also will be kicking off the African Business Forum that is aimed to highlight the various regions in Africa and their many business opportunities. Mayor Turner also will host a lunch reception with all the ambassadors.
This is the first time Mayor Turner has hosted an event after the pandemic. We are all very glad that Africa Day will represent all the businesses in Houston doing business with Africa.
After I was appointed as Honorary Consul of Guiana in Houston I was always planning to promote the culture and economic relations between Texas and Guiana, especially in the areas of agriculture, education and infrastructure. Because of the pandemic delay, we still plan to visit with our business partners at the end of October of this year.
Mr. Mayor, we are very grateful for your efforts to promote Africa in our city.
