US plays crucial role in promoting Gambian textiles
Oct '10
The US Embassy in Banjul and the West Africa Trade Hub (WATH) Office in Dakar, Senegal had together organized the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) trade seminar; where Cynthia F. Gregg – the United States Embassy Charge D'Affaires in Gambia, revealed that USA has been playing a significant role in promoting Gambian textile products in the US market.

According to Gregg, the seminar on opportunities and procedures for exporting to United States under AGOA has been organized, to create awareness among the participants about the quality of their products and enhance the importance of their products with adequate value-added services, so that they can enter the US market.

She further added that Gambia has three prospective sectors which can leverage the benefits from AGOA and the garment sector is one of them.

AGOA offers the sub-Saharan nations a scope of exporting a wide variety of both levy-free and quota-free products to the US market. Over 6,000 products can be exported from Africa, which includes handicrafts, textile, garment and footwear, under this act.
