U.S. Chamber Comments on President Obama’s Trade Agenda


The President’s comments today highlighting the importance of intellectual property to our nation’s economy come at a pivotal time, and should be lauded. Our economic recovery, and the jobs that will come with it, depend on the innovation and creativity of the American people.  And so protecting IP rights by enforcing copyright, patent and trademark laws in the U.S. and abroad is critical to our nation’s success.


We commend President Obama for recognizing this, as well as singling out the need for a strong Anti-Counterfeiting and Trade Agreement that will raise the bar on enforcement standards and improve cooperation between nearly forty countries. Click here to read more of this statement.
