Michael Froman - World Trade Organization


Last quote by Michael Froman

In T.P.P., countries agreed to a whole bunch of rules for us because they were getting access to Japan, which they couldn't get on their own. The question now is how Mexico and Canada sell this at home – making these unilateral concessions to us – in exchange for nothing.feedback

Michael Froman has been quoted 23 times. The one recent article where Michael Froman has been quoted is China as a champion of free trade? Not so fast. Most recently, Michael Froman was quoted as having said, “You really can't be a leader of free trade if you have restrictions on your own system. There are specific actions you need to take internationally to help support the system and actions you need to take domestically to open up your economy and make sure there's a level playing field. That flies in the face of being a global leader on these issues. We've been saying for some time that if the TPP did not move forward, it would create a void that China was too willing to fill, and that even our closest military allies would line up behind China. We're seeing that play out now in real time.”.
