The National Pork Producers Council praised the Obama administration for today concluding a free trade agreement with Colombia, paving the way for congressional approval of the deal later this year.

The Colombian National Congress overwhelmingly approved the trade agreement, which, when approved by the U.S. Congress and fully implemented, will add $1.15 to the price producers receive for each hog marketed, according to Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes. The agreement will increase U.S. pork exports to the South American country by $68.9 million and help create 919 U.S. pork industry jobs.
