Vodcast: Secretary Gutierrez on Colombia, Taxes

By April 11, 2008Taxation, Trade

Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez spoke at the National Association of Manufacturers recently on taxes and employment, as well as the importance of expanding trade to keep the economy humming.

Beforehand, the Secretary stopped by the “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” studio to make the case for tax incentives and the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, an interview we highlight in this week’s video podcast.

“We should not put politics in front of sending a message to an ally,” Secretary Gutierrez said of the Colombia trade deal. “If we don’t approve this, our allies and friends will be very confused. And people who don’t like us will be very happy.”
