In Sub Saharan African AGOA eligible countries, the textiles and apparel sector grew annually at an average rate of five percent since AGOA’s adoption and leading non-textile/apparel exports grew annually at as much as 23 percent between 2001-2006 and an overall rate of 12 percent since 2001. However, preferential access to the US market has not yet contributed to the creation of any significant manufacturing activities in Burundi.
