Houston, Texas, September 20, 2010/Afripol (press release): President Obama has appointed Kase Lawal, Chairman and CEO of Camac International Corporation, to a distinguished advisory panel on international trade policy.

Dr. Lawal is one of 30 appointees to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiation (ACTPN) announced by the White House. The committee, which is made up of a broad spectrum of industry, government, labor and environmental representatives, provides guidance on trade matters.

“It is an honor to serve President Obama as a member of this Advisory Committee,” Lawal said. “I remain dedicated to opening markets throughout the world and lending my expertise to shape policies and strengthen opportunities.”

For many years, Lawal has been very active in developing international trade relations, particularly with Africa. Previously, Dr. Lawal served as a member of the United States Presidential Trade Advisory Committee on Africa during the Bush and Clinton Administrations. Additionally, he has participated in several trade missions to Africa and served on the Board of Directors of the Corporate Council on Africa.

Committed to community service, Dr. Lawal provides leadership on several boards and commissions, including the Port of Houston Authority, the Houston Airport System Development Corporation, Fisk University, the National Urban League and the Greater Houston Partnership. He established endowments at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering and at Texas Southern University to form the Lawal Center for Global Trade. He is also the Chairman of Allied Energy Corporation, Vice Chairman of the Unity National Bank Board of Directors, and Chairman of the Board for CAMAC Energy, Inc., a U.
