Colombia revealed its concern to the United States concerning the responsibilities imposed by President Donald Trump on steel and aluminum imports.

On a state visit to Washington DC, the Finance Minister, Mauricio C?rdenas, and the Minister of Commerce, Market and Tourism, Mar?a Lorena Guti?rrez, stated that they will ask for to the U.S. an exemption from the new import duties on aluminum (10%) and steel (25%) adopted by the American federal government. C?rdenas and Guti?rrez worried that they would request that the exemption is granted in the fastest time possible.

The new duties, which will work in 15 days, ought to leave out some countries, such as Canada and Mexico, for which tariffs are conditional upon the conclusion of the renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
