ANTANANARIVO —  Two prepresentatives of Madagascar’s Business Community are attending the U.S.-Africa Business Forum in New York today.  Zouzar Bouka, the CEO of Vision Madagascar (ViMa) and Marcellin Andrianarivelo-Razafy, the Business Development Manager for Henri Fraise Fils & Cie are among the hundreds of attendees participating in the day long meeting with American Investors and African heads of state to discuss how to increase trade and investment between the United States and African nations.

That begins with a job.  And that requires trade and investment.. ”
