Office of the United States Trade Representative


Statement from Acting USTR Peter F. Allgeier Regarding Guatemala's Passage of CAFTA

"We congratulate the Guatemalan government for passing the Central American Free Trade Agreement by an overwhelming margin.

"They now join El Salvador and Honduras in approving the CAFTA.

"We are pleased that these democratically elected governments recognize the value of a free trade agreement with the U.S., which will bring economic growth and opportunity to their people.

"We look forward to working with the US Congress to pass this agreement that levels the playing field for American workers, farmers and businesses and strengthens democracies in our neighborhood."
