As the debt-limit debate dominates the political landscape, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said Wednesday that work is ongoing on three pending free-trade agreements and a worker-aid program… “The administration is also working with congressional leaders to pass our pending trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama, as well as renewed Trade Adjustment Assistance, because we want to bring home the job-building benefits of these agreements as soon as possible," Kirk said at Global Services Summit organized by the Coalition of Service Industries (CSI).
