Spanning the Western Hemisphere: Free Trade Area of the Americas

Author

  • Francisco Parodi

Abstract

Thirty-four countries in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean would make up the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) if negotiations currently under way are successful in establishing this new trading bloc. While the FTAA would bring a number of benefits to its members, the economies involved differ greatly in development and structure, and finding consensus will be challenging.
