I am a supporter of free and fair trade because it is crucial to economic success and job creation in Georgia. International trade affects forty-two percent of our jobs here in the United States. Americans produce the world's best products, and opening international markets to our businesses will benefit our economy and create jobs.
An essential element to any trade agreement is that it be fair to our industry and workers. Some past trade agreements failed on this account and I will only support agreements that ensure that we compete on a fair playing field. Trade yields many benefits for the Georgia economy, but we must hold our trading partners accountable.
