Chile FTA Final Text

The Chile Free Trade Agreement (FTA), which was approved by Congress in 2003, is a state-of-the-art agreement that eliminates bilateral tariffs, lowers trade barriers, promotes economic integration and expands opportunities for the peoples of both countries. U.S. Trade Representative Robert B. Zoellick signed the agreement on behalf of the United States, and Chilean Foreign Minister Soledad Alvear signed for Chile, at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami. The U.S.- Chile FTA is the first free trade agreement between the United States and a South American country.
