US Chamber of Commerce sees Panama trade pact ‘within striking distance’

Thursday, June 16, 2011

White House and congressional negotiators appear "within striking distance" of a deal on a retraining program that has held up votes on trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.

The US Chamber of Commerce said it was ready to spend generously on lobbying and advertising to win approval of the three long-delayed agreements.

Meanwhile, a pair of Democratic senators warned that President Barack Obama's decision to pursue the trade deals could hurt party members running for re-election next year.
