STATEMENT BY AGRICULTURE SECRETARY MIKE JOHANNS REGARDING FREE TRADE AGREEMENT WITH COLOMBIA on February 24
"I applaud the hard work of the U.S. and Colombian negotiators who today concluded free trade agreement negotiations between the U.S. and Colombia that will open new export opportunities for our farmers and ranchers."
"Colombia is our second largest agricultural market in Latin America, currently accounting for $677 million in sales of wheat, coarse grains, cotton and soybeans, among many others.
As many products from Colombia already enter the U.S. duty-free... this agreement will help to level the playing field for our producers by eliminating tariffs and non-tariff barriers for U.S. agricultural products."
