WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today launched the U.S.-Colombia Business Council, an organization that will endeavor to build upon already close economic ties between the two countries in order to foster a stronger, more robust commercial partnership.
Jobs, jobs, jobs. That’s been at the top of every American’s mind as the country has struggled to recover from the great recession. Across America, hard-working middle class families have sought to regain their economic footing and continue to climb the ladder of success. It hasn’t been easy, but we are seeing signs that a brighter future lies ahead, and technology is helping contribute to the recovery.
- The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is pleased to share this report. The Chamber and its members have long been committed to aligning trade, regulatory and competition policy in support of open and competitive markets. In recent years, however, the Chamber has grown concerned with disparate approaches to antitrust enforcement around the world and increasingly misguided uses of antitrust as a means to achieve industrial policy outcomes.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce welcomes a report issued today by an independent group of experts it commissioned to consider U.S. responses to the inappropriate use of antitrust enforcement actions worldwide to achieve industrial policy outcomes. In preparing the report, the group drew upon its members’ decades of experience in competition, trade, and economic policy in deliberations independent of the Chamber.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) yesterday submitted comments to the Department of Commerce’s (DoC) National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) calling on the DoC to support the Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things (DIGIT) Act in Congress, a bill that would ensure that stakeholders are engaged with the government on issues surrounding the internet of things (IoT). The comments also warn the NTIA against creating new regulations that would inhibit IoT development.
