According to the Post & Courier, the U.S. Africa Command is planning to relocate from Germany and a team from Charleston journeyed to Washington to show why the government should consider Charleston, SC for the relocation.
“Mr. Kutter cited the state’s “very rich national security technology base” as well as the existing cooperation of academic and governmental efforts in support of industry. That is particularly true of Charleston. This is a good opportunity for agencies and businesses that have something to add to the cause to become part of the quest to bring the U.S. Africa Command, and its economic benefits, to Charleston”
According to the article, the Charleston area already has 22,000 active duty, reserve and civilian jobs related to the military. Currently, the military presence in Charleston has an economic impact here of about $4.67 billion a year. The Africa Command, with an annual budget of $310 million, would increase this number significantly.
