ABSTRACT
The article examines two limited forms of preferential trade arrangements: the African Growth and Opportunities Act of 2000 (AGOA) enacted by the U.S. Congress, and the Cotonou Agreement between the European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Countries (ACP). Both of these regimes are motivated by the belief that allowing trade status for developing economies will accelerate their economic growth and development.
