Strategic focus

There are a range of actions that Kenya needs to undertake to respond to the opportunities that AGOA offers. A framework is required to help guide, focus and communicate these actions.

There are three main focus areas that all important AGOA-related actions fall under. They relate to trade policy, business support that is specifically focused on exporting to the US, and business support that is relevant to all businesses. These comprise the three main thrusts of the AGOA strategy.

Actions under each strategic thrust have different geographic focus areas: some are predominantly focused on the US, others on the cross-over point between the US and Kenya, and others mainly on Kenya.
