AGOA has worked well for the sectors that have understood how to use it and connect with American importers.  Lack of awareness about the program, challenges in getting trade finance (especially for smaller enterprises), and difficulties in making the right connections to U.S. buyers or partners are often cited as factors.  This panel will feature experts from African companies and associations that have found ways to ‘crack the code’ to enter the U.S. market.  It will share lessons learned on what works, consider the role of administrative barriers and delays, and suggest steps that could be taken to further expand AGOA access and utilization – as well as changes that should NOT be made.
