State of Georgia Archives: on Free Trade


Zell Miller: The key to economic success is new markets & competition

We’ve learned that to survive in your own domestic market, you have to be able to compete with imports from all over the world. As long as you have to be internationally competitive to succeed, you might as well take advantage of the opportunities on the international market. Last year our exports totaled more than $10 billion. We can make new contacts in emerging markets. To do that, we are going to increase our trade representatives around the world.
