Statement by U.S. Trade Representative Susan C. Schwab on House Ways and Means Committee approval of the Peru Trade Promotion Agreement

 

 

"I am very pleased the House Ways and Means
Committee has approved the Peru Trade Promotion Agreement by a unanimous 39-0
vote,” said Ambassador Schwab.  “For years, nearly all of
Peru’s goods have entered the
United
States duty-free.  With this vote,
committee members are opening up Peru’s market to U.S. exports and
cementing the benefits of two-way trade for both our nations.  I look
forward to an overwhelming bipartisan vote by the full House in favor of this
agreement."
