At last, a free trade agreement summary

US Customs has just published a long overdue side-by-side comparison of all existing US free trade agreements, such as NAFTA, CAFTA and UKFTA.

For now, the featured FTAs are limited to non-textile agreements.  CBP has not indicated when a similar summary of FTAs governing textiles will be available.

The summary makes it quite obvious just how complex these agreement truly are.  In addition to serving as an official reference tool, the document can help demonstrate to a trade professional’s senior management why appropriate resources are necessary to comply with their numerous and confusing requirements.

The FTA summary is available here.
