U.S. Ambassador to Panama Will Host Conference Call on AEM-Supported Trade Accord

AEM members can participate in a conference call scheduled to discuss how U.S. exporters can take advantage of the U.S.-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement, which AEM supported as part of a coalition advocating enhanced global competitiveness for American manufacturers and creation of U.S. jobs. The agreement entered into force on October 31, 2012.

The conference call will be hosted by U.S. Ambassador to Panama Jonathan D. Farrar. Originally scheduled for December 11, 2012, this event has been postponed until January/February 2013. For more information and updates please email or visit

As a member of the Trade and American Competitiveness Coalition, AEM had called on Congress and the Administration to enact Free Trade Agreements with Panama as well as South Korea and Colombia. The agreement with South Korea entered into force in March 2012 while the agreement with Colombia went into effect in May 2012.

Each of these agreements enhances the global competitiveness of American manufacturers and generates new, good-paying jobs for U.S. workers.
