Business Roundtable CEOs Making Strong Case for Trade and Trans-Pacific Partnership

Business Roundtable CEOs continue to demonstrate leadership in explaining the benefits of expanded trade and pressing Congress to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership. “When we look at trade agreements, TPP in particular, we’re looking through the eyes of our customers,” said UPS CEO David Abney on "Bloomberg Markets" on Bloomberg TV.

Similarly, IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty and Xerox Chairman and CEO Ursula Burns each recently authored opinion pieces making the economic case for the TPP. The Indianapolis Star also published an op-ed, “Trans-Pacific Partnership is good for U.S. workers,” co-written by Tom Linebarger of Cummins Inc., Chair of BRT’s International Engagement Committee, and Mike Bertsche, president and CEO of Camcraft, a Cummins supplier. In September, Andrew Liveris of Dow Chemical wrote a column covering a wide range of trade and international economic issues, “Ushering in a New Era of Global Progress and Prosperity through Trade.”
