U.S. Terminates AGOA Trade Preference Program for Burkina Faso

January 01, 2023

WASHINGTON – The United States today terminated Burkina Faso from the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) trade preference program for failing to meet the requirements of the AGOA statute.  The Biden-Harris Administration is deeply concerned by the unconstitutional change in government in Burkina Faso.  Burkina Faso will be provided with clear benchmarks for a pathway toward reinstatement and the Administration will work with their government to achieve that objective.
