Trade Agreemnts
Last published date:

Cabo Verde has neither a bilateral investment treaty nor a taxation treaty with the United States.  For more than a decade, Cabo Verde has expressed an interest in establishing a bilateral trade and investment framework agreement with the United States.  However, as a member of ECOWAS, Cabo Verde will benefit from the TIFA agreement that was signed in August 2014 when it enters into force.  Cabo Verde is also eligible for duty-free imports into the United States under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).  The country has bilateral investment agreements with Angola, China, Cuba, Germany, Italy, Mauritius, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Switzerland.  It enjoys a special partnership with the European Union as a Peripheral Region Nation and is a member of ECOWAS.  Cabo Verde has an agreement on mutual protection of investments with Hungary and tax treaties in force with Portugal, Macau, Spain, Guinea-Bissau, Senegal, and Luxembourg.
