Washington DC – The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) today welcomed Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) as Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. NFTC President Bill Reinsch released the following statement.
“The NFTC congratulates Senator Wyden on his confirmation as Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Chairman Wyden has been a leader on trade throughout his Senate career – particularly in addressing 21st century global trade issues – and we have no doubt he will guide the Committee in advancing the U.S. trade agenda to promote economic growth and create American jobs.
“This is a critical moment for the United States with the historic Trans-Pacific Partnership, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and Trade in Services Agreement negotiations underway, pending Trade Promotion Authority legislation and the potential for comprehensive tax reform. We look forward to continuing to work with Senator Wyden on these important trade and tax issues in his new role as Chairman.”
In October 2013, Chairman Wyden delivered keynote remarks at the NFTC’s annual World Trade Dinner.
