    Abstract

    Implications of the Trade and Development Act of 2000, which includes the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), for U.S. textile and apparel industries were investigated. This study applied the sub-Saharan’s top five U.S. textile and apparel import countries’ economic, political, cultural and demographic factors to textile and apparel competitor categories and competi- tive forces based on Austin’s (1990) Environmental Analysis Framework (EAF). Findings indicated that the sub-Saharan African region will not pose a significant threat to the U.S. textile and apparel producers and importers after parity due to the small percentage (1.98%) of imports. Further findings revealed the advantages and opportunities provided by AGOA for the sub- Saharan region
