On April 12, the United States and Peru concluded negotiations for the United States-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement, a major advance in economic and security relations between the U.S. and Latin America's fifth most populous country. Peru's legislature has already approved the deal, and it now awaits action in the U.S. Congress. Economically, this free trade agreement (FTA) with Peru will benefit producers in both countries with greater market access and consumers with less expensive products.
