The three-day AAE Summit is themed ‘Breaking New Ground’andis to be heldfrom the 29th to the 31st of October 2012 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, situated in Cape Town, South Africa. When asked why the AAE Summit is to be held in South Africa, Nhongo confirmed that; “South Africa is the gateway to Africa and that gives us great opportunities in terms of attendees and reaching the goals of the AAE Summit.”

Nhongo is proud to count the 19th United States Ambassador to Ethiopia, Ambassador David H Shinn, as one of the various speakers to be presenting at the AAE Summit. The Ambassador has had a diverse career spanning over 37 years in the foreign service of the United States, including ambassadorship to Ethiopia and Burkino Faso.In addition, the Ambassador has served on assignment in Lebanon, Kenya, Tanzania, Mauritania, Cameroon and Sudan.
