source africaWith the support of the USAID Southern Africa Trade Hub since its inception in 2013, Source Africa has grown into an important annual pan-African textile, clothing, footwear and fashion accessory trade event. 

Exhibition space was sold out at this year’s event, with 15 African countries showing that they can compete with the best on price, quality, and standards.

Held in Cape Town from June 9-11, Source Africa enabled buyers to access and source a wide array of diverse products and services offered by African suppliers at a single event.

The Source Africa 2015 seminar series, supported by the Trade Hub, focused on AGOA Renewal and Its Impact. “A 10-year renewal for AGOA could lead to dramatically different types of investment in the apparel supply chain,” said Assistant US Trade Representative for Textiles and Apparel Gail Strickler during her address. “The extension offers tremendous opportunities for more integrated supply chains across Sub-Saharan Africa.”

The seminar series gave buyers, suppliers, and industry players the opportunity to hear directly from policy experts and analysts in the sector, as well as ask specific questions of the panelists about AGOA and sourcing in Africa.
