The Dynamo responded four minutes later with Barnes’ second of the match. Ricardo Clark fed Barnes, who ran toward the net and drew Kennedy away from the post. Barnes slipped his shot into the net for his eighth goal of the season. Bruin made it 3-1 in the 63rd minute and Garcia scored in the 80th and 90th minutes — with the second coming on a penalty kick.

Our dependency on Europe has been reduced, while trade with Asia as well as intra-Africa has picked up significantly. The next region for growth is the U.S. and were very pleased to see the U.S. governments willingness to break down trade barriers to achieve this. The IMFs Regional Economic Outlook for Sub-Saharan Africa report found that economic activity in the region is projected to expand by about 5% in 2012 and 2013, a similar pace to that observed in 201011. Key markets driving this growth are Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, Mauritius and South Africa. The express company has seen a similar picture appearing between the US and various African trade lanes, with larger, more developed economies like South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana and Angola boasting strong double digit growth on both inbound and outbound volumes. However, according to their shipment figures, it is the smaller, rising economies that are seeing a major boom, with Somalia, Mayotte, Guinea-Bissau and South Sudan seeing meteoric increases in imports from the U.S., and Comoros, Eritrea, South Sudan and Liberia enjoying significant demand for exports to the States. The USA and Africa have historically enjoyed favourable trade conditions based on the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) of 2000, says Ian Clough, CEO for DHL Express USA. We are confident that, when this legislation is reviewed , there will be further benefits for both U.S. and African businesses looking to build cross-border business opportunities. According to statistics released at the AGOA Forum in Addis Ababa last month, U.S. total trade with sub-Saharan Africa (exports plus imports) has grown more than 250 percent , to $72.3 billion in 2012 from $28.2 billion in 2001, the first full year of AGOA trade.
