Panama, Chile Sign Free Trade Agreement

Panama and Chile have signed a free trade agreement that will eliminate nearly all tariffs between the nations within 10 years.

Signed Tuesday, the deal aims to improve access to markets, cross-border services and conflict resolution. It also includes an environmental cooperation pact.

Panamanian officials say the pact will also help the tiny country to build its export industry.
