Attention Focuses on FTAs

Wed, 19 Jan 2011 17:49:47 CST

Attention Focuses on FTAs The Obama Administration has finalized the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement and set a July 1, 2011, target date for Congressional approval. The National Cattlemenís Beef Association is supporting the move to expand international trade but is critical of the Administration leaving behind U.S. agreements with Panama and Colombia. NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs, Colin Woodall, says, "it is extremely disappointing the administration has been silent on the pending agreements with Panama and Colombia."

Chairman of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, has urged the Obama Administration to put forward a timeline to finalize the pending agreements with Panama and Colombia. Woodall says, "Congressman Brady should be commended for his leadership on this issue and for his efforts toward developing and expanding markets for U.S. beef and other U.S.-made products."

House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp of Michigan has called a hearing on the pending trade agreements with South Korea, Panama and Colombia for Jan. 25, 2011. Woodall says the pending agreements have been stalled for far too long. "Itís time to ratify them and start shipping U.S. beef to these markets."
