Senator Jose P. Laurel and James M. Langley (Laurel-Langley Agreement)

Issue before Laurel-Langley treaty

The Laurel-Langley treaty was a revised United States-Philippines Trade Agreement replacing the Bell Trade Act, which became unpopular among Filipino nationalists due to provisions which tied the Philippine economy to the U.S. economy. (Kahimyang Project)

Bell Trade Act

...contingent upon Filipino ratification of the Bell Act. The act remained extremely unpopular in the Philippines. It was later superseded by an agreement more favourable to Filipino interests, the Laurel-Langley Agreement, which took effect in 1956. (britannicadotcom)

The purpose and control of Treaty

The treaty, which took effect on January 1, 1956, expired in 1974. It abolished the U.S. authority to control the exchange rate of the peso, made parity privileges reciprocal, extended the sugar quota, extended the time period for the reduction of other quotas and for the progressive application of tariffs on Philippine goods exported to the U.S.  (Kahimyang Project)
