Trump Makes Rwanda Pay Duty For Clothes Exports to U.S.

U.S. President Donald Trump has suspended Rwanda's duty-free access to the United States for apparel products until Rwanda comes back into compliance with African Growth and Opportunity Act's eligibility requirements, the deputy U.S. Trade Representative CJ Mahoney has said. This comes after the U.S. threatened to review Rwanda's status after the latter banned importation of used clothes and shoes.
