allAfrica.com: Africa Must Also Lobby U.S. Congress on Trade Law Page 1 of 2

Next week about 48 African leaders will descend on Washington, DC for the first ever U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. African leaders are expected to arrive with a long list of items to address with President Barack Obama, with the need to expeditiously reauthorise the African Growth and Opportunity Act AGOA near the top of the list.

Originally enacted in 2000, AGOA provides eligible sub-Saharan African countries with duty-free access for certain exports to the U.S. market. The purpose of AGOA is to expand U.S. trade and investment with sub-Saharan Africa, stimulate economic growth and encourage sub-Saharan Africa’s economic integration.
