Ambassador Kirk welcomes new bill for Haiti
04
May '10
United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk welcomed introduction by the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means Committees of a bill to expand and extend trade benefits available to Haiti, increasing Haiti's duty-free access to the U.S. market for certain Haitian-made apparel and other articles.

Ambassador Kirk noted that the bill would also extend until the year 2020 the slated expiration date of the benefits under the Haitian Hemispheric Opportunity through Partnership Encouragement Act of 2008 (HOPE II). He issued the following statement:

"I commend this bipartisan, bicameral effort to provide much needed economic opportunities to the Haitian people," said Ambassador Kirk. "One of the most powerful tools we can use to help Haiti recover and thrive after January's devastating earthquake is to extend trade opportunities that lead to job-creating investment there."
