SA delegation in US for AGOA talks

Minister Davies joins a delegation of senior government officials, business and labour – led by Special Envoy on AGOA Faizel Ismael – which has been in the US since the weekend.

The Minister and his delegation will be meeting with the United States Trade Representative (USTR) regarding AGOA, which expires in September this year.

South Africa, together with sub-Saharan African countries, has been calling for the 15-year renewal of AGOA for all eligible countries.

AGOA’s purpose is to assist the economies of sub-Saharan Africa to improve economic relations between the United States and the region.

The reauthorisation of AGOA is done by the US Congress. It provides duty-free market access to the US for qualifying sub-Saharan African countries by extending preferences on more than 4 600 products.
