On March 27, Consul General Miller gave an overview of the opportunities and challenges of doing business in South Africa at a meeting of the Africa Regional Council (ARC) at Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago, Illinois. The ARC promotes the safety and security of U.S. businesses, academic institutions, and non-governmental, faith-based or other organizations with operations in Africa. The ARC is part of the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC). OSAC was created in 1985 to promote security cooperation between American private sector interests worldwide and the U.S. Department of State.
The OSAC Country Council in Johannesburg has 84 members. The council meets every two months to discuss safety and security related issues in South Africa. The Johannesburg OSAC Country Council Chair is Wayne Hendricks of Macquarie Securities. The Senior Regional Security Officer for the U.S. Mission to South Africa, Pat Moore, is the co-chair.
OSAC will hold its next ARC meeting in Johannesburg in September 2014. For more details on the ARC or the OSAC Johannesburg Country Council, contact Mario Reta at firstname.lastname@example.org or 011-290-3426.
