Accra, Ghana – The American people, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), today opened an African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) Trade Resource Center in Accra in partnership with the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry.  The aim of the Center, one of 15 across West Africa, is to increase the value of exports from the region by guiding businesses to access regional and global markets for agricultural and value-added trade.  The end result, say organizers, will be increased exports.  This, in turn, will spur greater competitiveness, lead to more jobs, and be a a powerful foundation for broad-based economic growth.
