The United States and Colombia entered into a free trade agreement in May, 2012. The agreement established more than a dozen tariff rate quotes (TRQs) for U.S. agricultural products that will be phased out over the next several several years. U.S. agriculture will benefit from knowing why some TRQs are fully subscribed while others are not.
