NAFTA Expansion AgreementsIn addition to our NAFTA and CAFTA sections, visit our in-depth sections on each of these NAFTA expansion agreements:
Despite overwhelming evidence that the NAFTA model is a failure, there have been and remain numerous attempts to expand this model to more countries around the world.
NAFTA expansion agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea passed in 2011. The largest NAFTA expansion agreement to date, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), is currently being negotiated between the U.S. and 10 countries in the Asia-Pacific. Additionally, in the past few years, NAFTA expansion agreements have been passed - by razor-thin margins and with numerous last-minute arm-twisting techniques - with Peru, Oman and five Central American countries and the Dominican Republic (collectively under CAFTA, Central America Free Trade Agreement.)
