Last minute problems for the FTA with the US


The signature of the Free Trade Agreement with the US was planned for Monday 10, just after the elections. Though there are some problems which could delay the signature of the agreement, one is a restriction to the importation of meat from the US due to the presence of BSE (Bovine spongiform encephalopathy) or mad cow disease in some meat from the US. The other issue is the translation to Spanish from the text of the Free Trade Agreement.
