That's because most of its products already come into this country duty-free thanks to a decision two decades ago to promote legitimate businesses in an Andean region rife with cocaine. Most U.S. exporters to Colombia would see their tariffs, now ranging from 7% to 80%, slashed to zero." Quotes-end.png
