Commerce Department Unveils "Colombia Tariff Ticker"

As part of the Bush Administration's efforts to convince Congress to pass the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement, the Commerce Department today released the “Colombia Tariff Ticker” which tracks the dollar value of tariffs since the signing of the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement 520 days ago. According to Commerce, the tariffs paid by U.S. exporters to Colombia shown on the Colombia Tariff Ticker are an estimate based on data from the World Trade Atlas and Colombian tariff schedules.

In launching the Colombia Tariff Ticker, the Commerce Department said that the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement "would eliminate 80 percent of these tariff payments on consumer and industrial goods immediately, and 100 percent within ten years." Commerce also noted that American exports face an estimated $1.9 million on tariffs each day that passes without two-way free trade with Colombia.
