Bush pushes for free trade pact with Panama

Free trade was one of the main topics discussed when Panamanian President Martin Torrijos met his U.S. homologue at the White House on Friday. President George W. Bush said that the White House would “work in good faith to get an agreement done” and encouraged Congress to approve of a free trade deal with Panama.

In addition, President Torrijos called for more cooperation between both countries in developing biofuels as an alternative to dependence on foreign oil.
