Highlights

The United States will host the fifteenth annual US-sub-Saharan Africa Trade and Economic Cooperation Forum, commonly known as the AGOA Forum, on September 26, 2016, at the US Department of State, in Washington, D.C. Related events will take place September 22-23.

AGOA is the US government's signature trade initiative with sub-Saharan Africa.

The AGOA legislation mandates the annual AGOA Forum to foster close economic ties between the United States and its partners in sub-Saharan Africa. This year’s theme is “Maximizing AGOA Now while Preparing for the Future Beyond AGOA.”

Program details will be available on AGOA.info/forum once finalized.
