South Africa No Longer Faces AGOA Suspension

In a statement issued March 14, the White House announced that South Africa has taken significant steps to restore market access for U.S. pork, beef and poultry and no longer faces suspension of its agricultural trade benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).

The Obama Administration had set a March 15 deadline for South Africa to meet market access benchmarks for these products. As we have reported in previous editions of the Export Newsline, South Africa reopened to U.S. beef on Jan. 19 and to U.S. pork on Feb. 26.
