Trade Agreements

The United States has free trade agreements with 20 countries. These include 12 bilateral agreements and 2 multilateral agreements (NAFTA and CAFTA-DR). These agreements create opportunities to increase U.S. agricultural sales internationally, stripping away barriers to trade, eliminating tariffs, opening markets and promoting investment and economic growth.
