In a note sent to Lusa, the US embassy in Luanda states that the event that marks the export of the first mixed food products from the Angolan company Foodcare Lda, free of customs duties, through AGOA, will take place on Thursday.

According to the North American diplomatic mission, the act marks the beginning of a "new era" of trade between the Angolan food sector company and the United States of America.

"This is an action that aims to promote economic diversification through trade, developing the agricultural sector and agribusiness by supporting companies in obtaining higher standards and the consistency necessary to successfully export to the USA", it states in the statement.

The US Government, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), funded the Southern Africa Trade and Investment Program, which facilitates duty-free exports from ports to the US under the AGOA, allowing access to approximately seven thousand diverse products, from Sub-Saharan African countries, to the North American market.
