The exporter toolkit component is a resource for African companies to learn about fundamental US regulations, US government policies, and general business strategies such as trade exhibiting tips and strategies and US market entry strategies as well as sector-specific information and studies. It will continue to develop and expand further.
The key objective of this section is to provide a place where African business stakeholders can obtain information on the key principles and issues involved in exporting to the United States, as well as find sector-related research and related resources.
The AGOA Exporter Toolkit section was developed with support from the USAID Southern Africa Trade Hub and in collaboration with the USAID Trade Hubs in East Africa and West Africa. The Toolkit provides exporters and potential exporters with a wealth of information on US government policies, fundamental US import regulations, sector-specific information and studies, as well as general business tools such as trade exhibition tips and US market entry strategies. While a number of current toolkit resources hosted by this site were created for West African audiences, they generally apply equally to exporters in Southern or East Africa.
