SA US poultry deal to benefit SA in AGOA

This comes as the current AGOA which is due to expire at the end of September will see 65 000 tonnes of US chicken imported into South Africa. The two countries had been at loggerheads over the inclusion of US chicken imports into the South African market.

Briefing reporters on Monday, South Africa’s special envoy on AGOA — which is a preferential agreement that has been in place since 2000 between the US and Sub Saharan African countries — Ambassador Faizel Ismail said negotiations on the matter have been important.

Ambassador Ismail said that what had been of concern to South Africa was the demand by the US poultry industry represented by National Chicken Council and United States of America Poultry and Egg Export Council (USAPEEC) for the current anti-dumping duties that South Africa has in place to be dropped from the tariff book so that the US can resume their exports of poultry into South Africa.
