Over the past four months members of the CAFTA Monitoring Working Group have coordinated the drafting of this report with friends and allies in Central America. While it is far too early to detail long-term trends in labor, textiles, agricultural practice and policy, investment patterns, services, and environmental consequences of CAFTA, in this report we have looked primarily at the process of implementing CAFTA since January 1, 2006 and some early trends and concerns that have emerged, many of which we will continue to monitor.
