Trade Representative Hills spoke to reporters on the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement and the fast-track trade authority which the Bush administration maintains is necessary for successful trade negotiations. Trade Rep. Hills, who participated in previous trade negotiations with Mexico, announced the release of the administration’s action plan on labor and environmental issues in response to the expressed concern of members of Congress over the extension of fast-track trade authority. Critics of the extension of fast-track authority charge that U.S. industry operating in Mexico will evade U.S. regulations that would prevent the exploitation of workers and harm the environment. Trade Rep. Hills also elaborated on the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement and responded to reporters' questions on U.S. trade policies. close
