Beyond AGOA: Looking to the Future of U.S.-Africa Trade and Investment is a publication of the office of the United States Trade Representative. It makes the case for strengthening the U.S.-Africa trade and investment relationship, and for rethinking the policy architecture to propel this relationship into the future.
The report also examines pathways for advancing the U.S.-Africa trade and investment, encourages investment in sub-Saharan Africa, and build new markets for American products and services. It also builds off the basic premise that deepening and expanding these ties is in the critical interest of both the U.S. and the Sub-Saharan African partners.
The report concludes by highlighting the various architectural and policy approaches that have been employed by the U.S. and African policymakers to date, and that remain key in discussing the future beyond AGOA.
