Ambassador Schwab statement on Peruvian Legislature approving amendments to U.S.-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement
U.S. – Peru Trade Promotion Agreement yesterday. Through this action the Government of Peru has formally adopted changes to the text of the agreement, including the five core International Labor Organization rights made enforceable like other provisions in the agreement – in addition to provisions on the environment, port security, and others.
“This historic action is consistent with the terms of the May 10 Bipartisan Trade Agreement because it is a formal, legally binding amendment rather than a side letter. I look forward to working with the Congress on expeditious enactment of the U.S. – Peru Trade Promotion Agreement.”
