KENYA: Textile Exports Up 400 Per Cent
Kenya's textile exports soared more than 400 per cent to $46.15 million in the first eight months of the year, Nairobi newspapers have reported.
That impressive increase, from just $9m in the same period last year, has been attributed to the country's accreditation to the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) in January of this year.
The accreditation means Kenya is now able to export some 2,000 products to the American market with duty free quota, including garments and other textile products.
