Trade Access

Textile and garment manufacturers in Tanzania benefit from comprehensive duty-free access to markets across the world due to a number of beneficial trade agreements.

USA – AGOA (African Growth and Opportunity Act)

As an investor in Tanzania’s textiles sector you have duty-free access to the United States market through AGOA. Under AGOA Tanzania and other qualifying countries benefit from the most liberal access to the US market available to any country or region which does not have a Free Trade Agreement with the US. In June 2015 the US Government extended AGOA for 10 years, giving confidence to firms, both local and foreign, that their investments in new production facilities will pay off due to guaranteed access to the US apparel market.
