On November 2, 2022, in a press release, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced the intent to terminate Burkina Faso’s eligibility under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) effective January 1, 2023. The press release is a response to President Joseph Biden’s letter of intent noting that “the Government of Burkina Faso has not established, or is not making continual progress toward establishing, the protection of the rule of law and of political pluralism, as stated in the eligibility requirements of section 104 of the AGOA.”
