Zambia belongs to the 19-member COMESA, which allows for preferential tariff duties between member states. Zambia also belongs to the 14-member SADC, which established an FTA in 2008. The establishment of a single market through the merged Tripartite Free Trade Area (COMESA), the East African Community
(EAC), and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), was formally launched in June 2015.
Zambia has duty-free and quota-free access to the EU market, under the “Everything but Arms" (EBA) scheme for the world’s Least-Developed Countries (LDCs). Zambia is also eligible for trade benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), which provides duty-free/quota-free access to the U.S. market for most goods, including textile and apparel.
