Re: WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) made the following statement today praising the successful multilateral trade negotiations just completed at the 9th Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organization in Indonesia. 

"The WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement is great news for the entire global trading community, and will help to restore the role of the WTO as a place to conclude trade deals whose benefits are spread broadly around the world.  I applaud the work of United States Trade Representative Michael Froman and look forward to further achievements at the WTO, including expansion of the Information Technology Agreement."
