Senator Sherrod Brown on a Competitive Agenda for a Global Economy


11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT



With goods and services trade accounting for nearly one-third of overall U.S. economic activity, now more than ever we need to ensure that American workers and businesses are able to compete at home and abroad. As Congress is poised to consider new trade agreements, Senator Sherrod Brown will lay out a vision for American competitiveness based on a strong and growing middle class and investments that can fuel both export growth and the welcome trend of insourcing that is bringing more jobs back to the United States. From repairing our crumbling infrastructure to supporting the renaissance in manufacturing, Senator Brown will describe smart policies that can garner bipartisan support and lay the foundations for a more competitive American economy.
