Colombia is an important market for America's farmers and ranchers. In 2010, the United States exported $832 million of agricultural products to Colombia, the second highest export total in South America.

The Agreement will provide significant new access to Colombia's $166 billion services market, supporting increased opportunities for U.S. service providers.

The International Trade Commission (ITC) has estimated that the tariff reductions in the Agreement will expand exports of U.S. goods alone by more than $1.1 billion, supporting thousands of additional American jobs.
