Statement by USTR Schwab on Approval of Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement by Colombian legislature

October 31, 2007



"This vote demonstrates Colombia’s determination to move forward in
establishing deeper and stronger trade and investment ties with the
States,” said Ambassador Schwab.  “President Uribe has made tremendous
strides in establishing a more peaceful and hopeful future for the Colombian
people.  Our free trade agreement
with Colombia will help advance these
efforts and create economic opportunities for the people of both countries.  I look forward to working with U.S.
Lawmakers to approve this important agreement.”
