FOURTH MEETING OF MINISTERS OF TRADE
SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA
MARCH 19th, 1998
Concrete progress by the year 2000
We reaffirm our commitment to make concrete progress by the year 2000. We direct the negotiating groups to achieve considerable progress by that year. We instruct the TNC to agree on specific business facilitation measures to be adopted before the end of the century, taking into account the substantive work that has already emanated from the FTAA process.
