Office of the United States Trade Representative
Dominican Republic Advisory Group Reports
On April 23, 2004, the Office of the United States Trade Representative transmitted to the President and the Congress reports from 32 trade advisory committees, comprising more than 750 practitioners representing diverse interests and views, regarding the recently completed U.S.- Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement. The Trade Act of 2002 requires these committees to give an advisory opinion on proposed trade pacts to the Administration and Congress, and support for this agreement was widespread. On March 15, the Dominican Republic agreed to become fully integrated into the recent U.S.-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) by assuming the same general obligations and commitments as CAFTA participants Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
