This week, Straight Talk Africa will discuss the African Growth and Opportunity Act, AGOA, which is set to expire in 2025. As stakeholders call for the renewal of AGOA, U.S. President Joe Biden says he wants to discuss improvements with Congress before reauthorizing the program.

Host Hayde Adams is joined by legal analyst and partner at Adomi Advisory Group Johanna Leblanc, political risk analyst, Maria Lourenco, and Dennis Matanda, chief executive of Morgenthau Stirling, Inc.
