ADVISORY: Sen. Sherrod Brown to Discuss Policies that Build America’s Competitiveness in a Global Economy
Washington, D.C. — On Friday, June 7, 2013, the Center for American Progress Action Fund will welcome Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for a discussion on America’s economy, including how supporting our middle-class workers will advance America’s economic standing in a global marketplace. Brown, a member of the Senate Finance Committee’s panel on International Trade, Customs, and Global Competitiveness, will be the keynote speaker at the event.
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, Sen. 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, Sen. Brown will describe smart policies that can garner bipartisan support and lay the foundation for a more competitive American economy.
