Audit of USAID’s African Growth Competitiveness Initiative.

Country: South Africa
Fiscal Year: 2010
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No

The African Growth and Opportunity Act was signed into law as title 1 of the Trade and Development Act of 2000, offering incentives for African countries to open their economies and build free markets. Supporting the African Growth and Opportunity Act, the African Global Competitiveness Initiative (AGCI) was launched in 2006 as a $200 million, 5-year Presidential initiative aimed at promoting the export competitiveness of enterprises in sub-Saharan Africa to expand African trade regionally and with the United States and other international trading partners. To achieve this objective, AGCI has two main strategies: (1) providing technical assistance that advances export competitiveness and (2) supporting complementary activities that contribute to the objectives of AGCI.

This audit will determine whether the African Global Competitiveness Initiative has increased the export competitiveness of business enterprises in sub-Saharan Africa.
