African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) web site

U.S. total trade with Sub-Saharan Africa (exports plus imports) increased 28.0 percent in
2008, as both exports and imports grew. U.S. exports increased by 29.2 percent to $18.5
billion, driven by growth in several sectors including: machinery, vehicles and parts,
wheat, non-crude oil, aircraft, and electrical machinery (including telecommunications
equipment). U.S. imports in 2008 increased by 27.8 percent to $86.1 billion. As has
been the case throughout 2008, this growth continues to be due to a significant increase
of 31.9 percent in crude oil imports (accounting for 79.5 percent of total imports from
Sub-Saharan Africa).
