CAFTA DR Progress

Here is an interesting link if you want to know what is going on with the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) from the perspective of The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). I encourage you to follow the CAFTA-DR debate as US Congress prepares to vote on the agreement. Some say that securing passage of this accord is a priority for President Bush, and it will set the stage for further achievements in advancing political and economic freedom in the Western Hemisphere. I just hope that it works and it does not becomes a straight jacket for liberalizing further the Central American countries, or an excuse to avoid doing more profound reforms in the trade aspects and other aspects.
