Manufacturers Welcome New Members of Administration's Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations

Five NAM Members Appointed to Provide Counsel on Trade Matters

WASHINGTON, D.C., - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Chairman Michael E. Campbell and four other NAM members were appointed by President Obama today to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations (ACTPN), tasked with providing policy advice to the Administration on trade matters and related issues.

"As manufacturers continue to lead our nation's economic recovery amidst unprecedented global competition, we face many challenges ahead," said NAM President John Engler. "We are pleased to see the President appointed NAM Chairman Michael Campbell and four other NAM members to the ACTPN. These manufacturing and business leaders are highly qualified to provide counsel to the Administration on how to boost our nation's exports over the next five years and maintain America's leadership in world markets.

"I am also pleased to see New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's appointment to the ACTPN. His unique perspective on how states are impacted by global competition is critical to the mission of the committee."

The ACTPN comprises 45 members who broadly represent key sectors of the economy including manufacturing. The following NAM members were appointed by President Obama today to serve on the committee:
  • NAM Chairman Michael Campbell, Arch Chemicals Inc.
  • Pamela G. Bailey, Grocery Manufacturers Association
  • Michael Decker, FedEx
  • Robert McDonald, Procter & Gamble
  • John Surma, US Steel

    The NAM joined with the American Farm Bureau Federation and the Coalition of Service Industries in July to release a comprehensive approach to double U.S. exports in five years including policy changes needed to improve market access and level the international playing field. A complete text of the policy proposals is available at www.nam.org.

    The NAM's "Manufacturing Strategy for Jobs and a Competitive America," outlines what is needed for manufacturing to succeed in the face of fierce global competition. It sets high goals and calls for action on trade policies along with tax, energy, infrastructure and regulation. To learn more about the Strategy, visit www.nam.org.

    The National Association of Manufacturers is the nation's largest industrial trade association, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing has a presence in every single congressional district providing good, high-paying jobs.
