Office of the United States Trade Representative received reports from 31
trade advisory committees, comprising over 700 practitioners representing
diverse interests and views, regarding the completed free trade
agreements (FTAs) with Singapore. The Trade Act of 2002 requires these
committees to prepare reports on proposed trade agreements subject to Trade
Promotion Authority (TPA) for the Administration and the Congress. By an
overwhelming margin, the committees found that the agreement promotes U.S.
economic interests and substantially achieve the negotiating objectives set out
by Congress in TPA legislation it enacted last year.
