NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evan G. Greenberg, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ACE Group, today provided the following statement regarding the introduction of legislation to reauthorize Trade Promotion Authority (TPA):
"Today's introduction of bipartisan legislation to reauthorize Trade Promotion Authority is a critical first step in advancing America’s trade agenda. TPA is an essential means to an end. It enables the successful negotiation and Congressional consideration of key ongoing trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA). The enhanced trade and investment that will result from these agreements will help create U.S. jobs, drive more robust economic growth and help America remain competitive in an increasingly crowded global marketplace. ACE will continue to work with the Obama Administration and Congress to demonstrate the benefits of TPA reauthorization and seek legislative approval.”
