Japan and the Trans-Pacific Partnership Statement by FedEx Express Chief Operating Officer & President, International

April 15, 2013

“FedEx welcomes the conclusion of bilateral TPP negotiations between the United States and Japan.  As the third-largest economy in the world, and the United States’ fourth-largest trading partner, Japan’s entry into the TPP would add significant economic importance to these negotiations.  Removing barriers to trade with Japan will help the U.S. economy and create new business opportunities for our customers.  We are pleased to see that express delivery is one of USTR’s priority sectors, and we look forward to working with USTR to ensure equivalent conditions of competition for our business.”

Michael L. Ducker, Chief Operating Officer & President, International for FedEx Express.
