  • examples of how products and services from the United States integrate into key SSA value chains;
     
  • a description of the intellectual property environment, including national and regional laws, enforcement measures, and infringement issues, in key SSA markets;
     
  • a broad overview and examples of technological innovation in the SSA food and agricultural production, processing, and marketing system;
     
  • a broad overview and descriptions of recent developments in the digital economy for key SSA markets;
     
  • a summary of the AGOA utilization strategies that have been developed by SSA countries;
