SAs Agoa future is in its own hands

The US is reviewing South Africa’s status as a full beneficiary of a preferential trade pact known as the African Growth and Opportunity Act (Agoa), which eliminates import levies on more than 7,000 products ranging from textiles to manufactured items.

Agoa was renewed in June for another 10 years, benefiting 39 African countries.

At the heart of the dispute are US chicken and cattle farmers, who want the South African government to remove trade restrictions imposed to protect the local industry from a flood of cheaper imports.
