Sponsorship at the Africa Trade Show

Opportunity

Sponsorship at the Africa Trade Show will provide you and your business with the opportunity to market your services and projects, meet with business leaders, industry experts, as well as African and U.S. government officials to discuss major potential projects and developments.

The current U.S. Administration believes that Sub Saharan Africa can be the world’s next major economic success story that offers enormous opportunities for American and African businesses. U.S. trade to and from Africa has tripled over the past decade and U.S. exports to Sub Saharan Africa now top $21 billion dollars. Africa is also home to six of the ten fastest growing countries in the world.

Finally, the International Monetary Fund projects sub-Sahara Africa to grow between 5 and 6 percent each year over the next two years.

African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA)

 •      The U.S. Congress passed the African Growth and Opportunity Act into law in 2000 in order to promote U.S. and African trade relations and contribute to economic development on the African continent through export-led growth. 

      As the backbone of the U.S.-African commercial relationship, AGOA offers duty-free access to the U.S. market for 6,400 products from 40 countries.

      AGOA was originally set to expire in 2005 but has been renewed twice for five year periods in 2005 and 2010. Last year, the U. S. Congress renewed AGOA ahead of its September 2015 expiration date for 10 years to 2025.  Below is a clip of President Barack Obama speaking on AGOA. https://youtu.be/x-CyOCTyRMM
