Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There's a serious problem with the United States being a CAFTA member as Mr. Granados observes:

Mr Granados argues that, to take full advantage of the agreement, countries need to "improve institutions, the rule of law, physical infrastructure, promote education and technological innovation, [and have] sound finances, macroeconomic stability and adequate social-safety nets".

I submit that the other members of CAFTA should refuse to sign until the US fulfills these requirements.  Otherwise the it will merely drag-down the development of all the other countries due to its mis-government and archaic social and economic infrastructures and systems.

I'm afraid I may have to forward your comment to all of my colleagues.

Thank you.

If you think you can use it, by all means do so.
