South Africa

The United States exported nearly $279 million in food and agricultural products to South Africa during the 2013 fiscal year. Top exports include poultry, dairy products, planting seeds and prepared foods.

In 2010, the United States and South Africa signed a memorandum of understanding, laying out a framework for strategic dialogue between the two countries. The countries agreed to continue to deepen cooperation through regular consultation on strategic issues including food security, trade, investment, energy, health and education.

In 2012, the United States and South Africa signed a trade and investment framework agreement (TIFA), which amends the TIFA signed in 1999, in order to strengthen the U.S.-South Africa trade and investment relationship.
