Table: What Next, Mr. President?

Bush soon may have a freer hand in negotiating trade deals. Here's his to-do list:

-- Complete stalled free-trade talks with Singapore and Chile, both of which began under President Clinton.

OUTLOOK: Could be finished by yearend

-- Open talks with regions that have expressed interest in a free-trade deal. Among them: five southern African and five Central American nations.

OUTLOOK: Very favorable

-- Reinvigorate talks to establish a Free Trade Area of the Americas ranging from Canada to the tip of Latin America.

OUTLOOK: Will require a second Bush term to complete

-- Pursue global talks begun last November in the Doha Round of the World Trade Organization.

OUTLOOK: Likely only with a second Bush term
