The Andean Trade Preference Act (ATPA)
The Andean Trade Preference Act (ATPA) was enacted in 1991 to combat drug production and trafficking in the Andean countries: Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. The program offers trade benefits to help these countries develop and strengthen legitimate industries. ATPA was expanded under the Trade Act of 2002 by the Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act. Section 207 of the ATPA requires the Secretary of Labor, in consultation with other appropriate federal agencies, to undertake a continuing review and analysis of the impact of the implementation of the ATPA on U.S. labor. The legislation also directs the Secretary to submit an annual report to the Congress that presents a summary of the results of the review and analysis.
On November 25, 2008, based on Bolivia’s failure to meet ATPA eligibility criteria related to counternarcotics cooperation, President Bush suspended Bolivia’s designation as a beneficiary country under the ATPA, effective December 15, 2008. As a result, the 16th annual report is the last report in this series that includes Bolivia.
