EU-Colombia-Peru Aim for Trade Accord in Effect by First Quarter

The European Union, Colombia and Peru are working to implement their free trade agreement on a provisional basis by the end of March, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said.

Full implementation will follow once the accord has been approved by Colombia’s Senate, Barroso told reporters in Santiago, Chile. The European Parliament and Peru’s Congress approved the deal last month, he said.
