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. [...] Kenya is not a major U.S. trade partner in global terms, but it is one of Africa's most dynamic economies and the second-largest beneficiary of AGOA's [African Growth and Opportunity Act] tariff benefits, excluding crude oil. The United States views Kenya as a strategic partner in the region: the country is a major beneficiary of U.S. security and foreign assistance, and a hub for U.S. security initiatives in the region. Kenya hosts the largest U.S. diplomatic mission on the continent."
