Walmart Statement: Passage of Colombia, Panama and South Korea Free Trade Agreements

Updated: Oct. 12, 2011

“Walmart commends the Administration and Congress for working to pass the free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea. Implementing these agreements will lower trade barriers and help level the playing field for American companies. American manufacturers and service providers will be able to grow by reaching new customers overseas, and more American exports will mean more American jobs at a time when they are desperately needed.”

- Mike Duke, president and CEO, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
