The United States is calling on members of the World
Trade Organization (WTO) to eliminate all tariffs on consumer and industrial
goods by 2015. This proposal, combined with the far-reaching U.S. agricultural reform proposal
submitted to the WTO in July, would eliminate tariffs on the nearly $6 trillion
in annual world goods trade, lifting the economic fortunes of workers, families,
businesses, and consumers.
