AFRIQUE – USA – AFRICA and Said El Mansour Cherkaoui

International Conference on Africa, I initiated and organized with the EBCITD (East Bay Center for International Trade Development) Oakland, California.

So to combine the useful with the pleasant, I published all these photos with first that of Africa over my shoulders. This photo dates from 2001, the year I suggested and participated in the organization of the First International Conference on Africa held in Northern California at Berkeley. Another will follow later in San Francisco in 2007.

I complete this first photo with others such as the one where the former CEO of the African Development Bank (Dr. Babacar Ndiang) was holding my hand and I am surrounded by African-American executives, one during one of my presentations and others showing a partial view of the audience.

Conférence Internationale sur l’Afrique a Claremont Hotel, Berkeley, California, USA

Since my early studies at Institut des Etudes Politiques of the Grenoble University, France, the development and integration of Africa were at the forefront of my studies and topics of my presentations in seminaries and essay-papers. It was natural that I continue to work and increase the awarness about Africa and its needs of establishing new kind of relations with other countries other than the past metropolitan and colonialists.

Here below among other pictures, there is a photo taken in company with the Regretted Dr. Babacar Ndiaye, former CEO of the African Development Bank Group who hold firmly my hand and is standing at my left side.

I extended the invitation to Dr. Boubacar N’diaye for his presence among us at this International Conference on Africa.  He was delighted about my presentation and we also sat together and had lunch at the same table.  Wonderful Man with full love for Africa and Africans and who initiated a series of important financial and operational measures: the African Businessmen Round Table, the creation of the African Bank for import-export (Afreximbank) and the setting up of a special easy financing for the African private sector (investors and entrepreneurs) without the guarantee of their governments.

On my right hand is Dr. Faheem Director of the Center for International Trade Development, on the other left side and holding my hand is Dr. Boubacar N’diaye, Chairman of the African Development Bank from 1985 to 1995 and honorary chairman of the same institution (Rest in Peace among the Blessed ones, Ameen)

I initiated and developed a workplan on the organization of The International Conference on Africa took place in 2001. The first time in the history of the Bay Area of San Francisco and North California to have a conference of such magnitude and subject. that I submitted to Fazale Sharif the Director of the EBCITD which I was the initiator and for which I and participated directly in its organization. I contacted and invited Dr. Babacar Ndiaye and in the following photo, event / photo took place is during an International Conference on Africa I had organized in Oakland, California and of which Dr. Babacar Ndiaye, Rahimahu Allah was our Guest of Honor.

Here below are listed links which content present among others some illustrations of my activities in regard to the Integration of Africa with which I was directly involved, including the facilitation of the signing of the Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Morocco.

For many among us, time flies through horizons without leaving traces on recognition and gratitude on what we have achieved for the good for others especially in my case not be born in the United States but I remain up to now the maker of differences between cultures and the guardian of the memories I cherish and remember through my meetings and interactions with the real treasuries of the Humanity.

The second link below presents “The ADB honors its former president, the late Babacar Ndiaye: https://www.afdb.org/en/news-and-events/the-afdb-pays-tribute-to-late-president-babacar-ndiaye-17363


The Conference Room was packed with U.S. and Foreign officials and Executives as well as faculties and Researchers on Africa and the Place where all these interactions took place was the fabulous and monumental Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, Northern California.

I was the Director of Graduate Business Programs at Dominican University of San Rafael, when Dr. Cherkaoui was teaching in our international MBA program. Said brought not only a solid academic background to the classroom, but also a wealth of business experience both in the US and in Asia and Latin America. He is passionate about his students and his work outside the classroom. This made him one of the most effective faculty that we had teaching at the time.

Response to Jeff Williamson for his promotion to more important positions to promote California in the International Trade Arena

Said El Mansour Cherkaoui, Ph.D. You ★ Consultant ★ International Supply Chain ★ Organizational Management ★ Entrepreneurial Planning ★ United States of America ★ France ★ Morocco ★ China ★ Sub-Saharan Africa ★

Jeff Williamson

I wish you another Giant STEP toward success.  I have been around the arena of international trade and I know, I have seen, heard and read about what you have accomplished for California and its international traders and trading partners which is much more than just the exchange of goods.

In reality and  more importantly you have directly enabled peace and rapprochement between different and distant cultures.  You have opened new horizons for mutual understanding and laid down opportunities  that carried identities, channeled values and shared beliefs that reinforced the goodness of our humanity.

These are the hidden but authentic driving forces for the authentic builders of international trade relationships between entities, organizations and nations and you are ONE designer, builder and developer of such missions.  You deserve only the Best of the Best that will come to your path with the light of blessing and good health.

I look forward to keeping in touch with you and to continue to support and contribute to your drive toward making this world better for our children and the next generation.

God Bless all of us and our families together.

It has been my great pleasure knowing you and working with you through the Center for International Trade Development at Oakland and later on at Berkeley.

In reality, your statement “transitioning out of this role,” brought back my memories with the CITD and the EBCITD.  

You remind me too of my own transitioning within the CITD at its every productive turn from 1993 to 2007 with just a few gaps given the frequent changes of the local Directors.

I joined the CITD in 1993 when only 4 centers existed in the entire California.  Our CITD was located at 2020 Milvia street inside of the Vista College with the Director Dr. Barbara Beno.

In 2006, the EBCITD and Vista College were transferred to the newly built and named Berkeley City College, here below is my presence pictured at this and other events around the world.

Moral of the story, I was at the founding of the Center for International Trade Development and at the Founding of the Berkeley City College and the transfer of the EBCITD at this new location.
