Colombia's Ambassador Pushes FTA

Wed, 19 Jan 2011 17:45:02 CST

Colombia’s Ambassador Pushes FTA Speaking at the joint National Association of Wheat Growers/U.S. Wheat Associates winter conference in Washington, D.C., Gabriel Silva, Colombia's Ambassador to the United States, said time is running out on the stalled Free Trade Agreement with Colombia. Silva said passing the Colombia FTA along with the Panama and Korean FTA is doable, "if people understand what America is losing without moving ahead."

Silva believes delaying the Colombia FTA, "is destroying jobs in America. Overall imports, including corn, wheat and soybeans, have dropped." He said it's hard for Colombians to understand U.S. concerns over environmental, human rights and trade union issues since both the EU and Canada are fully satisfied with Colombia's performance in all three of these sensitive areas.

The Colombian Ambassador said patience in his country is running out. "We cannot wait any more."

He said both public sentiment and market share have shifted in favor of countries that moved ahead and decided to be our trade partners.
