This morning, both Peter Quinter and Melissa Groisman lectured before a group of 250 manufacturers and exporters in Bogota, Colombia to teach them the legal requirements of exporting to the United States under the very recently implemented US-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement. The lecture focused on the customs procedures for accurately completing the Certificate of Origin and to evaluate how merchandise qualifies as "originating" to get the free trade benefits. The seminar was sponsored and hosted by the Colombian government's trade promotion agency, ProExport Colombia, and will be followed this week with more seminars in the cities of Cali, Medellin, and Barranquilla.
