This document presents the findings and a binding ruling issued by the US Customs Department following an enquiry by a potential apparel exporter from Ghana. Ghana qualifies for apparel exports under AGOA, and is in addition also classified as a “Lesser Developed Beneficiary Country”. The exporter seeks clarification regarding the AGOA-eligibility (and thus duty-free access to the US) of a garment which will be assembled in Ghana, but where certain input materials will be sourced from a region that does not qualify for AGOA benefits (Asia).
