The following statement may be attributed to Jim Cicconi, AT&T Senior Executive Vice President, External and Legislative Affairs:
“We commend President Obama, Ambassador Mike Froman and the Staff of the Office of the United States Trade Representative on concluding the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) negotiations and look forward to reviewing the agreement and working with Congress to ratify as soon as possible.
“AT&T fully supports the successful completion of TPP. Trade agreements allow countries to compete on a level-playing field by opening up markets and raising global standards. Once adopted, TPP will help establish 21st century rules for all sectors of the economy, including digital economy, and provide us with the opportunity to further U.S. economic growth, job creation and investment.”
