In case you missed it, IWF’s Michelle Bernard had a great article in the Washington Examiner last week detailing an economic agenda for American women. First up on that agenda is dealing with free trade agreements:
America’s women need what America needs, an administration and Congress committed to working together to ensure that the U.S. remains second to none economically. Free trade must again be a priority. Congress should reauthorize presidential fast-track authority and ratify the three pending FTAs. Then, the president should negotiate FTAs with other interested nations.
The administration should attempt to restart the Doha negotiations by exhibiting greater flexibility in reforming our agriculture policy. Washington also should accelerate discussions with Europe over economic harmonization. The global community will benefit from removing unnecessary barriers to trade and investment.
