Statement, Ron Busby, Sr., President, U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. On Trade Expansion
As the President of the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc., the "National Voice of Black Business", I am in full support of the Obama Administration's push for trade expansion, especially the current negotiations with Asia and Europe. These agreements will not only create more opportunity for Black businesses to grow to scale but will allow for the entire American business community to be more competitive in the global economy. The U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. is committed to making Black businesses aware of these upcoming opportunities, and we have dedicated a session of our annual conference to exporting. I charge Congress to enact Trade Promotion Authority and support the administration's proposed free trade agreements. This support and collaboration with chamber leadership, and the business community will allow us to rejuvenate the American economy and move forward as a nation.
