From the Document: "On February 6, President Trump and President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya announced their intent to begin free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations. If successful, it would be the first U.S. FTA with a country in sub-Saharan Africa. Congressional interest may include (1)Congress's constitutional authority to regulate foreign commerce, such as setting U.S. trade negotiating objectives, and considering FTAs through implementing legislation; (2)the FTA's potential effects on the U.S. economy, and trade and foreign policy implications; and (3) mandates in the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA, P.L. 106-200, as amended), in which Congress directed the President to seek African FTA partners and granted the region tariff benefits."
