About Free Trade Agreements:

Free trade is a policy followed by some international markets in which countries' governments do not restrict imports from or exports to other countries. A free trade agreement, or FTA, is an agreement between two or more countries in which the countries agree on certain obligations that affect the trade of goods. For the United States, the main goal of trade agreements is to reduce the barriers to U.S. exports and to protect U.S. interests competing abroad. The reduction of trade barriers and the creation of a more stable and transparent trading and investment environment make it easier and cheaper for U.S. companies to export their products and services to trading partner markets.

Imports from FTA partners provide direct benefits to Americans as well. They mean lower prices for companies seeking raw materials. In recent decades, lower tariffs have stimulated U.S. productivity through greater competition in the marketplace. They have also brought greater product choices to U.S. producers and consumers. 

As more FTAs are being implemented between the United States and other countries, the United States may have negotiated favorable treatment through an FTA to make it easier and cheaper for you. Documenting how a product originates, or meets the rules of origin, can make using an FTA a bit more complicated. However, these rules help to ensure that U.S. exports, rather than exports from other countries, receive the benefits of the agreement. Therefore, while accessing FTA benefits for your product may require more research and record-keeping, you can give your product a competitive advantage versus products from other countries.
