United States of America

English

The USA presents enormous potential for locally manufactured goods to enter that market. Opportunities presented through the African Growth and Opportunity Act to export duty free and quota free into the USA market remains largely unexploited. Firms wishing to export into the USA also have an opportunity to acquire more information from local institutions as well as the Southern Africa Trade Hub, located in Gaborone, Botswana.
