CHICAGO, Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Jim McNerney, Chairman, President and CEO of Boeing and Chair of the President’s Export Council, and Ursula M. Burns, Chairman and CEO of Xerox and Vice Chair of the President’s Export Council, issued the following statement today:
We fully support President Obama’s decision to submit free trade agreements with Colombia, Korea, and Panama to the Congress. These agreements will provide a powerful boost to U.S. exports, taking us one step closer to the National Export Initiative goal of doubling exports by 2014. They also will help drive job creation across the U.S. economy. We urge the Congress to provide swift bipartisan approval of these important agreements.
