NAM President John Engler was on the Asian version of
“Policymakers back home need to understand that there’s a lot of competition in the world; there are very, very good competitors out there and we’ve got work to do in order to be able to compete. So in the Congress, when they’re going slow on even the South American free trade agreements — with Peru, Colombia or Panama — or they’re talking about billions of dollars in new taxes, all of these things have an impact. Certainly energy policy has an impact.
“I want to be able to go home and say, look, here are all the things being done in place like Japan and China to become more competitive, here’s the investment being made, what are we doing?”
Engler also made the case for slogging ahead on the Doha round of the WTO Talks as the only way to lower global barriers to trade and U.S. exports.
