If, as expected, the deals go through this week, Florida will be one of the biggest winners. The U.S. International Trade Commission estimates that the trade deals will expand U.S. exports by $12 billion. Florida, the nation's fourth-largest exporting state, will get a substantial share of that business and the estimated 70,000 jobs it will create nationwide. Florida citrus growers andcattle ranchers stand to benefit from the opening of new markets in South Korea. And many small businesses in the state hope to take advantage of theincreased trade, especially with Colombia.
