Agoa Has Helped Lesotho Create Jobs, With More To Come

Lesotho trade minister Mokhethi Shelile said the African Growth and Opportunity Act (Agoa) had helped Lesotho to create jobs and lift thousands out of poverty and his interaction with American buyers at the Agoa Forum in Johannesburg showed there was scope for many, many more.

I spoke to a major South African buyer and they buy 17 million clothes annually, but then I spoke to an American buyer and they were looking to source 100 million, so as much as Agoa has helped Lesotho over the past two decades, there is the potential for much more, Shelile said.
