El Salvador Ratifies CAFTA

The El Salvador National Assembly ratified CAFTA on Friday, December 17. Although ratification was not unexpected, many wondered at the speed and process by which the vote was taken. SHARE has a report on the ratification on its web site. The battle over ratification now moves to the U.S. Congress where the vote is expected to be very close. The SHARE site is a good source for resource materials on CAFTA and how it might impact El Salvador.
