U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said Thursday that President Obama has decided that the 40 sub-Saharan African countries already in the African Growth and Opportunity Act program would remain eligible in 2012 and that no new countries would be added as beneficiaries.
“President Obama’s determination today is good news for the people of these African nations, as well as for the American businesses and workers trading with these countries,” said Kirk, calling AGOA “a vital and growing pillar of U.S.-Africa trade policy.”
