ShopAGOA Trade Fair

Thursday, August 29, 2019, 8:30 AM

The 2019 ShopAGOA Trade Fair, taking place in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area (USA) in August 2019 under the theme “Accelerating MSMEs Through AGOA”. The event will feature exhibits, workshops, and the launch of our ShopAGOA eCommerce platform. The African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) is a United States Trade Act, enacted on 18 May 2000 as Public Law 106 of the 200th Congress. The Act offers tangible incentives for eligible African countries to continue their efforts to open their economies and build free markets. AGOA has since been renewed to 2025.   The Act significantly enhances market access to the US for qualifying Sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries. Qualification for AGOA preferences is based on a set of conditions contained in the AGOA legislation. In order to qualify and remain eligible for AGOA, each country must be working to improve its rule of law, human rights, and respect for core labor standards. To date, there are over 40 African countries eligible under AGOA. Organized by The Marketing Team Africa (TMT Africa), the ShopAGOA Trade Fair will host more than 1000 participants (both sellers and buyers).   The 2019 ShopAGOA Trade Fair offers a unique platform, which connects Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) from AGOA eligible countries with buyers in the United States. The focus for the event is to accelerate innovation and the growth of MSMES from AGOA eligible countries for export to the US Market under AGOA.
