Colombia's trade balance with The USA

For Greg Weeks and anyone else interested.


In a previous post we already noticed that The USA greatly improved its trade balance with Peru the moment it got a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) signed and in place with the country. 

Here we notice something completely different in that...errr...The USA greatly improved its trade balance with Colombia the moment...errr.... it got a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) signed and...errr... in place with the country.

Probably a coincidence.

Data from here:

PS: Just so you know:





Indeed, the month the FTA came into effect (May 2012) was Colombia's best ever month of exports to The USA and it's been downhill ever since. While the USA's exports to Colombia have just risen and risen. Yup, sheer coincidence.
