Tanzania’s African Growth and Opportunity Act Out of Cycle Review

The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce President Trump’s decision to continue Tanzania’s African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) duty free import benefits as a result of steps Tanzania has taken toward eliminating prohibitive tariff rates on imports of used clothing and footwear and Tanzania’s commitment not to implement a ban of these products. The President’s decision is based on the results of an out-of-cycle review of Tanzania’s AGOA eligibility that was conducted in response to a petition filed by the U.S. used clothing industry in March 2017.
