AGOA: OPTIONS FOR GREATER US-AFRICA PARTNERSHIP

A WIIT Trust panel featuring Fall 2020 Scholarship Winner

The African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), the United States’ long-standing commitment to development and market access for African trade partners, will expire in 2025. How impactful has this program been to date? In the 21st century economy, are there other or better opportunities to engage with Africans, supporting long-term sustainable growth and market creation?  With an introductory overview by the Fall 2020 WIIT Trust Young Leader Scholarship Winner, Laura Spector, we will hear from a number of long-standing experts on Africa trade and bilateral relations – how do we make 2021 a better year for partnership with Africa?
