STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
Today's vote is an important milestone in our effort to build a new economic relationship with Sub-Saharan Africa and deepen ties with our Caribbean and Central American neighbors. This legislation will help increase trade, enhance opportunity, and boost economic growth in America and nations in Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America. I urge the Senate to pass this bill as soon as possible.
