ABSTRACT

U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement [Updated November 20, 2006]   [open pdf - 37KB]

From the Summary: "On February 27, 2006, U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman and Colombia's Minister of Trade, Industry, and Tourism, Jorge Humberto Botero, announced the conclusion of a bilateral free trade agreement. The Administration announced recently that the Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (CTPA) would be signed on November 22, 2006. President Bush notified Congress on August 24, 2006, of his intention to enter into the CTPA. Implementing legislation for the CTPA has not been introduced in the U.S. Congress. The CTPA is a comprehensive trade agreement which, if ratified, would eliminate tariffs and other barriers in goods and services trade between the United States and Colombia. A free trade agreement with Colombia was originally intended to be part of a broader U.S.-Andean free trade agreement (FTA), including Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru."
