ABSTRACT
This article discusses issues related to Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) The January 1, 2005 target launch date for the FTAA came and went without a murmur after months of limbo and stalled negotiations for what, in theory, could shape up to be the world's largest trade zone. A perennial problem for the FTAA is the disparity of the markets involved in the project, and although the EU does include countries with differing levels of development, these gaps are nowhere near as wide as those that exist amongst the diverse countries of the Americas.
