Janet Napolitano on Free Trade

Democratic AZ Governor; Designee for Secretary of Homeland Security


Expedite transport of goods to and from Arizona

Trade with Mexico represents another tremendous opportunity to expand Arizonaís economy. I have worked hard this year to enhance our already-strong relations with Mexico through productive meetings with President Fox and Sonora Governor Eduardo Bours. My administration continues to work through the Arizona-Mexico Commission and our counterparts in Mexico to further develop the Canamex Corridor and Cyberport capabilities to expedite the transport of goods to and from Arizona.

Build a rule-based global trading system.

Napolitano adopted the manifesto, "A New Agenda for the New Decade":

Write New Rules for the Global Economy
The rise of global markets has undermined the ability of national governments to control their own economies. The answer is neither global laissez faire nor protectionism but a Third Way: New international rules and institutions to ensure that globalization goes hand in hand with higher living standards, basic worker rights, and environmental protection. U.S. leadership is crucial in building a rules-based global trading system as well as international structures that enhance worker rights and the environment without killing trade. For example, instead of restricting trade, we should negotiate specific multilateral accords to deal with specific environmental threats.
