Addis Ababa to host 2013 AGOA Forum
To be held August 12-13, 2013, the theme for this year’s AGOA Forum is “Sustainable Transformation through Trade and Technology”.
The Ministerial-level event will include a high level dialogue on the future of US-Africa trade and economic cooperation, according to the US State Department.
Officials say the Forum will be preceded by private sector and civil society programmes, as well as a programme arranged by the Ethiopian African Women’s Entrepreneurship Programme (AWEP), on August 10-11.
There will also be a US– sub-Saharan Africa Trade Exhibition to run concurrent with the Forum events, officials added.
