View By Month: September 2020

On September 3, 2020, the USAID Southern African Trade and Investment Hub presented an overview of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and its benefits to members of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Zambia. The presentation was delivered as part of an AmCham-hosted webinar aimed especially at its new members, many of which may be unfamiliar with AGOA. In addition to AGOA, the USAID TradeHub shared details of the Generalized System of Preferences, which reduces the cost of importing some 6,400 eligible products into the United States. Potential Zambian products qualifying for these favorable terms include honey, processed foods, leather and leather products, crafts, and horticultural products. In 2018, the USAID TradeHub assisted Zambia to prepare an AGOA utilization strategy as a way of stimulating Zambian exports to the United States.
