What are the actual effects of a free trade agreement?
The United States International Trade Commission is looking into that question. It announced the institution of an investigation entitled the “Actual Effects of the Free Trade Agreements with Chile, Australia, and Singapore.” The investigation and proceeding report will examine the effects of the phasing-out of tariffs, anomalies in U.S. export levels (and the possible causes for these anomalies), and related matters.
Written submissions are due by July 15, 2010. The Intenational Trade Commission Report will be transmitted on December 13, 2010. Get more information at volume 75, page 28059 of the Federal Register.
