Written By: Market News International - By Heather Scott

Excerpt: President Barack Obama finally and formally submitted three free trade deals to Congress Monday after they had languished in legislative limbo for years…. Republicans had balked at renewing TAA, but many business organizations had urged approval of the program saying it was a key facet of a multi-dimensonal U.S. trade strategy. Chuck Dittrich, vice president of the National Foreign Trade Council, said Monday the choice should not be "either/or, it should be a combination" of worker retraining and free trade pacts.
