The U.S. Embassy Abidjan brought together more than 20 local and international journalists for a two-hour information session on AGOA.

The session, which was organised ahead of the 2019 AGOA Forum scheduled for August 4-6, 2019, in Abidjan, enabled the journalists to understand this American legislation aimed to assist the economies of sub-Saharan Africa and to improve economic relations between the United States and the region.

The session featured Kara Diallo, an USAID/AGOA specialist, who spoke on the advantages of AGOA for the eligible countries. Diallo’s presentation was followed by a questions and answers session and interviews with major media outlets, including state-owned newspaper Fraternite Matin.
