A Case For Trade Enforcement: Colombia and Intellectual Property

February 2, 2017

The Trump administration has rightly talked about the need to be tougher on trade enforcement, and the U.S.-Colombia trade agreement is one place to start, writes Nigel Cory in Intellectual Property Watch. The president's trade team should initiate a dispute with Colombia because it has failed to implement the intellectual property protections it agreed to put in place. If the U.S. does not take a stronger stance, this agreement will continue to be an uneven playing field that undermines U.S. companies.
