    TITLE I <<NOTE: AGOA Extension and Enhancement Act of 2015.>> --
EXTENSION OF AFRICAN GROWTH AND OPPORTUNITY ACT
SEC. 101. <<NOTE: 19 USC 3701 note.>> SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``AGOA Extension and Enhancement Act 
of 2015''.
SEC. 102. <<NOTE: 19 USC 3701 note.>> FINDINGS.

    Congress finds the following:
            (1) Since its enactment, the African Growth and Opportunity 
        Act has been the centerpiece of trade relations between the 
        United States and sub-Saharan Africa and has enhanced trade, 
        investment, job creation, and democratic institutions throughout 
        Africa.
            (2) Trade and investment, as facilitated by the African 
        Growth and Opportunity Act, promote economic growth, 
        development, poverty reduction, democracy, the rule of law, and 
        stability in sub-Saharan Africa.
            (3) Trade between the United States and sub-Saharan Africa 
        has more than tripled since the enactment of the African Growth 
        and Opportunity Act in 2000, and United States direct investment 
        in sub-Saharan Africa has grown almost sixfold.

[[Page 129 STAT. 364]]

            (4) It is in the interest of the United States to engage and 
        compete in emerging markets in sub-Saharan African countries, to 
        boost trade and investment between the United States and sub-
        Saharan African countries, and to renew and strengthen the 
        African Growth and Opportunity Act.
            (5) The long-term economic security of the United States is 
        enhanced by strong economic and political ties with the fastest-
        growing economies in the world, many of which are in sub-Saharan 
        Africa.
            (6) It is a goal of the United States to further integrate 
        sub-Saharan African countries into the global economy, stimulate 
        economic development in Africa, and diversify sources of growth 
        in sub-Saharan Africa.
            (7) To that end, implementation of the Agreement on Trade 
        Facilitation of the World Trade Organization would strengthen 
        regional integration efforts in sub-Saharan Africa and 
        contribute to economic growth in the region.
            (8) The elimination of barriers to trade and investment in 
        sub-Saharan Africa, including high tariffs, forced localization 
        requirements, restrictions on investment, and customs barriers, 
        will create opportunities for workers, businesses, farmers, and 
        ranchers in the United States and sub-Saharan African countries.
            (9) The elimination of such barriers will improve 
        utilization of the African Growth and Opportunity Act and 
        strengthen regional and global integration, accelerate economic 
        growth in sub-Saharan Africa, and enhance the trade relationship 
        between the United States and sub-Saharan Africa.

SEC. 107. BIENNIAL AGOA UTILIZATION STRATEGIES.

    (a) In General.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries should develop 
        utilization strategies on a biennial basis in order to more 
        effectively and strategically utilize benefits available under 
        the African Growth and Opportunity Act (in this section referred 
        to as ``AGOA utilization strategies'');
            (2) United States trade capacity building agencies should 
        work with, and provide appropriate resources to, such sub-
        Saharan African countries to assist in developing and 
        implementing biennial AGOA utilization strategies; and
            (3) as appropriate, and to encourage greater regional 
        integration, the United States Trade Representative should 
        consider requesting the Regional Economic Communities to prepare 
        biennial AGOA utilization strategies.

    (b) Contents.--It is further the sense of Congress that biennial 
AGOA utilization strategies should identify strategic needs and 
priorities to bolster utilization of benefits available under the 
African Growth and Opportunity Act. To that end, biennial AGOA 
utilization strategies should--
            (1) review potential exports under the African Growth and 
        Opportunity Act and identify opportunities and obstacles to 
        increased trade and investment and enhanced poverty reduction 
        efforts;
            (2) identify obstacles to regional integration that inhibit 
        utilization of benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity 
        Act;
            (3) set out a plan to take advantage of opportunities and 
        address obstacles identified in paragraphs (1) and (2), improve 
        awareness of the African Growth and Opportunity Act as a program 
        that enhances exports to the United States, and utilize United 
        States Agency for International Development regional trade hubs;
            (4) set out a strategy to promote small business and 
        entrepreneurship; and
            (5) eliminate obstacles to regional trade and promote 
        greater utilization of benefits under the African Growth and 
        Opportunity Act and establish a plan to promote full regional 
        implementation of the Agreement on Trade Facilitation of the 
        World Trade Organization.

    (c) Publication.--It is further the sense of Congress that--

[[Page 129 STAT. 369]]

            (1) each beneficiary sub-Saharan African country should 
        publish on an appropriate Internet website of such country 
        public versions of its AGOA utilization strategy; and
            (2) the United States Trade Representative should publish on 
        the Internet website of the Office of the United States Trade 
        Representative public versions of all AGOA utilization 
        strategies described in paragraph (1).
SEC. 108. <<NOTE: 19 USC 3701 note.>> DEEPENING AND EXPANDING 
                        TRADE AND INVESTMENT TIES BETWEEN SUB-
                        SAHARAN AFRICA AND THE UNITED STATES.

    It is the policy of the United States to continue to--
            (1) seek to deepen and expand trade and investment ties 
        between sub-Saharan Africa and the United States, including 
        through the negotiation of accession by sub-Saharan African 
        countries to the World Trade Organization and the negotiation of 
        trade and investment framework agreements, bilateral investment 
        treaties, and free trade agreements, as such agreements have the 
        potential to catalyze greater trade and investment, facilitate 
        additional investment in sub-Saharan Africa, further poverty 
        reduction efforts, and promote economic growth;
            (2) seek to negotiate agreements with individual sub-Saharan 
        African countries as well as with the Regional Economic 
        Communities, as appropriate;
            (3) promote full implementation of commitments made under 
        the WTO Agreement (as such term is defined in section 2(9) of 
        the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (19 U.S.C. 3501(9)) because 
        such actions are likely to improve utilization of the African 
        Growth and Opportunity Act and promote trade and investment and 
        because regular review to ensure continued compliance helps to 
        maximize the benefits of the African Growth and Opportunity Act; 
        and
            (4) promote the negotiation of trade agreements that cover 
        substantially all trade between parties to such agreements and, 
        if other countries seek to negotiate trade agreements that do 
        not cover substantially all trade, continue to object in all 
        appropriate forums.

        (including, but not limited to, laminated or coated zippers, 
        storm flaps, or other weatherproof construction) that has been 
        reinforced or engineered in a manner to reduce the penetration

        incorporation into a fabric or garment of materials, including, 
        but not limited to, activated carbon, silver, copper, or any 
        combination thereof, capable of adsorbing, absorbing, or 
        reacting with human odors, or effective in reducing the growth 
        of odor-causing bacteria.
            ``(14) The term `occupational outerwear' means outerwear 
        garments, including uniforms, designed or marketed for use in

of this chapter, Notes 1 and 2(a)(1) to chapter 59 and Note 1(c) to 
chapter 60 shall be disregarded in classifying goods as `recreational

of record shall maintain internal import records that specify upon entry 
whether garments claimed as recreational performance outerwear have an 
outer surface that is water resistant, treated with plastics, or a 
combination thereof, and shall further enumerate the specific features 
that make the garments eligible to be classified as recreational 
performance outerwear.''.
