Michael Stumo, CEO of CPA, attended the stakeholder meeting in Chevy Chase Maryland today on the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, also known as TAFTA. Negotiators from the European Union and the US also attended. Various special interests and nongovernmental organizations presented their priorities, objections and or support for the negotiations.
Michael advocated support for balanced trade, rules against currency manipulation, protecting US sovereignty, and other important matters on behalf of the CPA membership.
"We either need to get these trade agreements right, or stop doing them. We should not be afraid of advocating the American economic interest in these negotiations," said Stumo.
