It’s now or never to pass free trade agreements with Panama, Colombia and Korea, says the US Chamber of Commerce

Thursday, September 22, 2011


Free trade agreements with Panama, Colombia and Korea are before Congress this week and both sides of the aisle are dueling it out as to why, or why not, these agreements would spark, or kill, US job creation.

One of those testifying before the committee is Myron Brilliant, senior vice president for International Affairs at the US Chamber.

“Nearly 400,000 American jobs and $40 billion in lost export sales are at risk if we don’t act on the agreement and this is why: by standing still and failing to act on these deals, we’re falling behind,” he said.
