Colombia Trade Agreement
The United States-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (TPA) entered into force on May 15, 2012. This comprehensive agreement eliminates tariffs and other barriers to goods and services, promotes economic growth, and significantly expands trade between the two countries. Under the agreement, Colombia immediately eliminated duties on wheat, barley, soybeans, soybean meal and flour, high-quality beef, bacon, almost all fruit and vegetable products, wheat, peanuts, whey, cotton, and the vast majority of processed products. The Colombia TPA also provides duty-free tariff rate quotas on standard beef, chicken leg quarters, dairy products, corn, sorghum, animal feeds, rice, and soybean oil.
Detailed information about this and other free trade agreements is available from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
