Contents Background -- AGOA has differences from and similarities to other countries' trade preference programs and differences have affected program performance -- Sub-Saharan African countries' recent trade negotiations provide insights for future negotiations.
Summary "AGOA was signed into law in 2000 to offer SSA countries trade preferences that stimulate export-led economic growth and facilitate their integration into the global economy. This legislation was recently reauthorized, and the accompanying Senate report stated that the United States should seek all opportunities to deepen and expand its ties with SSA countries through accession by SSA countries to the WTO and negotiation of bilateral trade agreements. GAO was asked to identify lessons learned from other countries' trade preference programs and SSA countries' recent trade negotiation experiences. This report (1) compares AGOA with selected countries' trade preference programs in terms of key characteristics and performance, and (2) examines AGOA countries' participation in trade negotiations. GAO reviewed and analyzed documents and data, including information from the WTO to determine what portion of the imports from AGOA countries to major trade partners could enter under preference programs. GAO also interviewed officials from U.S. government agencies, African and other foreign governments, and international organizations. GAO selected countries and regions for comparison that are major export markets for sub-Saharan Africa, including the EU, China, India, and Japan"--Preliminary page.
