Angola: Angola Initiates Policies Impacting $2.5 Billion of Ag Trade

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On January 29, 2015, the government of Angola revoked import licenses for 25 agricultural products including poultry, effectively blocking imports of these products for an unspecified duration. The move followed a January 23, 2015, Ministerial Decree announcing import quotas on 14 food items, a new trade barrier that was not notified to the World Trade Organization. These changes in Angolan’s trade policy directly impact $285 million worth of agricultural products that the United States annually exports to Angola, including $260 million of chicken cuts exports. These actions transitioned a relatively free import system into a regulated quantitative control system covering more than $2.5 billion worth of agricultural imports from all sources.
