Clinton, Obama and McCain Vote For/Against Tech - U.S.-Peru Free Trade Agreement
U.S.-Peru Free Trade Agreement
The agreement would reduce most tariffs and duties currently affecting trade between the two countries, increase protections for intellectual property, and require Peru to take steps to strengthen its labor and environmental enforcement standards. Under the agreement, 80 percent of U.S. exports of consumer and industrial goods to Peru would enter duty-free immediately. This agreement was approved by a vote of 77-18.
