USTR Rob Portman statement regarding Senate Finance Committee approval of CAFTA-DR

"CAFTA-DR is a great agreement that levels the playing field for American workers, farmers and businesses, will boost U.S. exports and will promote stability and democracy among our friends and neighbors.

"Step by step, we’re making good progress and building momentum for its successful passage. I want to congratulate the Finance Committee for their strong bipartisan support for CAFTA-DR, as today’s voice vote shows, and for the effort Senators on both sides of the aisle made towards finding common ground.

"Another CAFTA-DR hurdle is successfully passed, and we look forward to the full Senate approving this agreement soon."
