Mozambique - National AGOA Strategy

Currently Mozambique has a low level of trade with the U.S. relative to other trading partners. is Strategy is therefore designed to: a.) identify AGOA-eligible sectors and products which Mozambique could export or increase export to the U.S., b.) to provide guidance on increasing the awareness and expertise of AGOA among Mozambique’s relevant public and private stakeholders and c.) to elaborate a set of strategic actions into short-term, medium-term and long term that, if implemented, could help Mozambique to better utilize the AGOA and capitalize on the preferred access to the U.S. market.

 

This strategy includes 21 recommendations on improving awareness of AGOA, competi­tiveness of specific sectors, and exploiting the benefits granted to goods made in Mozambi­que for the U.S. market. Each recommenda­tion includes identification of implementing entities as well as a recommended timeframe. As readers will note, there are a range time­frames from immediate to long term for Mo­zambique to better utilize AGOA and grow exports.
