The Malagasy Secretary of Commerce said, "Currently, and since the return of Madagascar into the AGOA agreement, exports are gradually rising. The Ministry of Commerce, and the Malagasy government in general, hopes that the AGOA market access training and knowledge management center will help increase those exports."
AmCham Madagascar is a grantee of the Hub. Under the grant, AmCham Madagascar is working with public and private sector stakeholders to increase awareness of export opportunities under AGOA, and help Madagascar increase its value of exports.
The American Chamber of Commerce in Madagascar is a non-profit association of American and local businesses and business people and is locally registered in Madagascar.
