AGOA signed into law in May 2000, AGOA offers African countries that open their economies and build free markets trade incentives with the United States. Set to expire in 2015, AGOA is a defining pillar of the U.S.-Africa trade and commercial relationship. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is playing a key role in the discussions on AGOA’s extension and expansion post-2015, and on how trade with Africa can foster development for the region.
