Southern African Customs Union Sample Clauses

Southern African Customs Union. The United States and the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) – comprised of Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Swaziland, and South Africalaunched free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations in 2003. Active FTA negotiations were suspended in April 2006, largely due to divergent views on the scope and level of ambition for the FTA. The FTA remains a longer-term objective for both the United States and SACU. In November 2006, the United States and SACU agreed to pursue a new type of agreementa proposed Trade and Investment Cooperation Agreement (TICA) – that could help lead the United States and SACU to an FTA in the longer term. The proposed TICA would establish a forum for consultative discussions on a wide range of trade issues, including but not limited to FTA issues; develop sector-specific work plans that should lead to increased U.S.-SACU trade and investment in the near term; and put in place the “building blocks” for an FTA in the longer term. The SACU countries are key beneficiaries of AGOA, with U.S. imports from SACU under AGOA valued at $2.2 billion in the first eleven months of 2006, and they comprise the largest U.S. export market in sub- Saharan Africa, with $4.2 billion in U.S. exports in the first eleven months of 2006.
