Although 19% of The Comoros' exports are to the United States, only 1% of their imports are from the United States.[2] The United States has signed a trade agreement with the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), of which The Comoros is a member. The Comoros is also eligible for preferential trade benefits with the United States under the African Growth and Opportunity Act.[1]
