Policy Brief

In Support of International Trade: Business Leaders Speak Out

CED has been a consistent voice in support of U.S. leadership for an open global trade regime. This policy update reiterates a fundamental truth: An open and vibrant trading system is vital to the economic well being of all Americans. During this period of economic distress and heightened sensitivity to the effects of economic policy, it is especially important for the United States to reaffirm its commitment to free and open trade. Historically, business leadership has played a key role in helping the public and its elected representatives to recognize the importance of open trade to our collective prosperity.
