Togo has been declared an AGOA beneficiary country under US Federal Register No. 77, Vol. 73 of 21 April 2008. This brings the number of AGOA beneficiaries currently eligible for duty-free market access to the US to 40.

Togo, located between Nigeria in the East and Ghana in the West, last year imported approximately US$ 285 million worth of goods from the United States, while exporting only US$ 5 million. There is hope that AGOA will substantially increase Togo's access to the US market and lead to a more balanced trade performance.

Togo's US-bound exports consist mainly of agricultural products, while its US imports are predominantly energy-related products, transportation equipment and to a lesser extent agricultural products, chemicals ans related goods, and footwear.
