ABSTRACT
The article informs that the U.S. administration has submitted the Dominican Republic-Central American Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA) to Congress amid reports it was offering new concessions to sugar producers to try to round up more support for it. In a White House meeting leading up to the submission, U.S. President George W. Bush urged Congress to pass the agreement "because U.S. has an interest in strengthening democracy and advancing prosperity in their hemisphere. But leaders in the DR-CAFTA countries may not get as much of an agreement as they expect because of administration promises to U.S. sugar producers and refiners.
