NAM says rising exports underscore importance of FTAs.
Press Release Summary:
July 17, 2008 - According to NAM VP for International Economic Affairs, Frank Vargo, manufactured goods exports were up 12% for first 5 months of this year as compared to 1 year ago. Coupled with slower 4% rise in imports, export performance has resulted in further reduction in manufactured goods trade deficit, which through May, is 11% smaller than last year. NAM is pressing to get barriers against U.S. exports eliminated in Colombia, Panama, and South Korea by Congressional passage of trade agreements.
