Colombia and Peru Sign Free Trade Agreements with the EU

Ecuador’s neighbors, Colombia and Peru, announced this week that they had signed free trade agreements with the EU.

This puts a bit of pressure on Ecuador, in that exporters from Colombia and Peru will be able to enter the EU with more competitive pricing than Ecuador.
