FedEx Testifies about Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership
FedEx Express executive vice president & chief operating officer Michael Ducker testifies before the U.S. Senate on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), webcast live, this Wednesday, October 30th at 11:00 a.m. (EDT).
The world’s largest express delivery company, FedEx Express continuously works to break down trade barriers and help customers benefit from increased market access. TTIP can more closely integrate the world’s largest trade and investment relationship, making trade between the U.S. and the EU more seamless and simple through more compatible regulatory approaches. The easier the process, the more companies – including small and medium size enterprises – will be able to participate in trade.
Trade plays a vital role in job creation and economic growth. The global economy has become highly sophisticated and relies on far-reaching supply chains. FedEx helps customers benefit from increased market access. By moving goods faster and more reliably across borders, customers can decrease costs, improve supply chains, and identify new opportunities for growth and profitability.
FedEx is a founding member and Corporate Co-Chair of the Business Coalition for Transatlantic Trade (BCTT), an organization established to promote growth, jobs, and competitiveness on both sides of the Atlantic through an ambitious, comprehensive and high-standard trade and investment agreement between the United States and the European Union.
