The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has determined that Mali has adopted an effective visa system and related procedures to prevent the unlawful transshipment of textile and apparel articles and the use of counterfeit documents in connection with the shipment of such articles. Mali has also implemented and follows, or is making substantial progress toward implementing and following, the customs procedures required by the African Growth and Opportunity Act to assist U.S. Customs and Border Protection in verifying the origin of textile and apparel products. 

As a result, effective with respect to articles entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Aug. 4, imports of eligible products from Mali will qualify for the textile and apparel benefits provided for under AGOA. Importers claiming such treatment should ensure that their entries meet the applicable visa requirements.
