Yesterday, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), an independent agency, released its report on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement. The following statement may be attributed to Tim McKone, AT&T Executive Vice President of Federal Relations:
“We are encouraged by the ITC’s report, which finds that the TPP would help develop cross-border trade in services and would benefit the U.S. economy.
“AT&T supports Congressional approval 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 the digital economy, and will promote U.S. economic growth, job creation and investment.”
