Ghana’s vision to increase its non-traditional export led to the development of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) Strategy in 2016 after the US agreed to a renewal of AGOA over a ten year duration, from 2015 to 2025. In a validation workshop on AGOA Strategy, U.S. Ambassador to Ghana joined officials from the Ministry of Trade and Industry to identify best ways of rolling out the strategy. Also present at the event were producers, processors, and exporters – as the AGOA Strategy is heavily dependent on these sectors. At large, the strategy helps Ghanaian companies take advantage of AGOA, a trade preference provided by the U.S. government to African countries allowing duty-free access to certain goods.
