AGOA Forum 2015

The Ministry of Industrialisation and Enterprise Development held an AGOA Forum at the KICC in Nairobi. We believe that a capacity-building Forum on AGOA and regional exports targeted towards micro, small and medium-sized enterprises is highly beneficial in order to take advantage of this great opportunity.

The objective of this forum was to educate MSMEs on the detailed regulations and benefits provided by AGOA and to build the capacity necessary to successfulluy export products to the US under AGOA.

The event brought together representatives from the Kenya and US governments, the private sector, development partners and entrepreneurs from across the 47 counties.

AGOA was recently extended for 10 years, the longest extension the Act has ever received. Beneficiary countries can export over 6000 products to the US under AGOA, duty-free and quota-free. Kenya is the largest exporter in textile and apparel in Africa under AGOA. However, our export portfolio also comprises of leather, vegetables and fruit products.

We believe that with dedicated support for MSMEs, we can greatly increase Kenya's exports to the US, particularly in the leather and agricultural sectors.
