East Africa Trade Promotion and AGOA

Speeches Shim

The U.S. Government is committed to supporting East Africa regional economic integration and strengthening mutually beneficial two-way trade and investment between the U.S. and Africa. The East Africa Trade Promotion and African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) project supports the goals of the AGOA, a U.S. Trade Act that was enacted in 2000 and renewed until 2025, to provide exporters from eligible African countries with preferential access to the U.S. market. The project also advances the U.S. Government’s Prosper Africa initiative, which seeks to unlock opportunities to increase trade and business opportunities between the U.S. and Africa, benefiting U.S. and African companies, investors, and workers.

USAID supports these goals by enhancing business-to-business linkages, standards, market access, and policy reforms coupled with the removal of barriers to trade to enable a fair business enabling environment and better trade relations. The project advances these objectives in five East African countries: Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda.
