"Negotiations between SACU and the US, to conclude a free trade agreement, have been stalled owing to substantive differences between the two sides on a broad range of issues. This report examines the goods market access dimension from the standpoint of additional market access that SACU could gain through locking in and extending AGOA preferences. It concludes that, whilst there are potential advantages to extending market access via the FTA, these are small in scope and that the main areas of benefit lie outside tariff negotiations, in rules of origin and US administration of trade remedies."
