"The African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), which provides eligible African countries with duty-free access to the US market, is scheduled to expire on 30 September 2015. While some believe reauthorisation will be resolved at the US–Africa Leaders Summit in August 2014, several steps must be completed before AGOA can be renewed. The legislative process is under way as members of congress and their staff have started to examine whether to reauthorise AGOA, and if it is reauthorised, for how long and what changes need to be made."
