Personally, I'm wondering the end of trade embargo against Cuba is realistic priority?
Probably, this is nothing more than "hope" of industry group...
(UPS Trade News for January 8, 2009)
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is urging incoming president Barack Obama to remain focused on international trade as a way to help jump-start the U.S. economy.
Specifically, the industry group has outlined a number of items as priorities for the U.S. trade policy, including completing the Doha Round of WTO talks; doubling federal spending on programs to help U.S. exporters; ratifying new free trade agreements, such as pending pacts with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea; and ending the trade embargo against Cuba.
According to the group's president and chief executive, Thomas J. Donohue, "a lot of smart people" that "understand trade" will be part of the Obama administration, and there's a sense of optimism that the new president will be a strong supporter of international trade.
