Why Donald Trump is (probably) no train smash for Africa

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Kathy Davey, Africa Portfolio Manager at Ashburton Investments.

Davey speculated as to what extent the Donald Trump administration could affect Africa.

Donald Trump disapproves of trade treaties and US aid.

However, according to Davey, the benefits to the US of removing treaties such as Agoa (amounting to a mere US$4.5 billion) or reducing aid to Africa are so small that the status quo is likely to be largely maintained.

For more detail listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

Trade with the US is very important to South Africa, but far less important for the US.

Agoa was recently renewed by a predominantly Republican Congress.
