President Signs Bill Extending Andean Trade Preferences Act and Generalized System of Preferences

The White House today held a signing ceremony for President Bush to sign H.R 7222, legislation recently passed by Congress that will extend the Andean Trade Preferences Act (ATPA) and Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program until December 31, 2009. Both programs would have expired on December 31, 2008 if they had not been renewed.

The President took the opportunity to press for the approval of the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement that was signed in November 2006, but is still waiting for Congressional approval.
