United States Trade Representative Michael Froman Eager To Hear From Industry
(Thu - March 06, 2014)
Ambassador Froman is welcomed by DDF Sponsor Greg Farmer, Qualcomm

Ambassador Michael Froman was sworn in as the 11th United States Trade Representative (USTR) on June 21, 2013. As USTR, he is President Obama’s principal advisor, negotiator and spokesperson on international trade and investment issues.  Ambassador Froman leads the Office of the United States Trade Representative in its work to open global markets for U.S. goods and services, enforce America’s rights in the global trading system, and foster development through trade.

Key initiatives under Ambassador Froman’s leadership include negotiations of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement in the Asia Pacific; the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the European Union; negotiation of agreements on services, information technology and trade facilitation at the World Trade Organization; and monitoring and enforcing U.S. trade rights, including through the Interagency Trade and Enforcement Center (ITEC).  

Ambassador Froman’s priorities include a commitment to maintaining a “truly global” internet, rather than a “German internet” or a “Malaysian internet,” and to eliminating barriers to the flow of electronic data. This means that there will be “tough” decisions to make in negotiating the TPP and the TTIP, Froman said.
