Welles Orr Discusses Trade Outlook in the 111th Congress and Pending Panama and Colombia FTAs in Latin America Advisor

05.07.09Welles Orr says that recent administration comments about the need to open markets to US goods “are welcome indicators about where this administration is headed with US trade policy. How it goes about that—the crafting and selling of a policy that makes sense to the American people— is indeed the big challenge. The Panama FTA appears to be the first true test of how well the administration can make its case for this 'new' trade policy and may just spell out how the trade debate will be framed in the 111th Congress as well.”
