“Commerce Helps Freedom and Freedom Helps Commerce,” Gutierrez Says of Administration’s Accomplishments in Spreading Freedom and Democracy
Washington (Nov. 6)—Secretary of Commerce Carlos M. Gutierrez spoke at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars about the Bush Administration’s achievements in spreading freedom and democracy through commerce. From Iraq to Afghanistan, to Georgia and throughout Latin America, where entrepreneurs, free enterprise and innovators flourish, so does creativity, prosperity and increasingly freedom. “Free trade agreements work. They work for both sides … [and] probably the single biggest example that I can think of for commerce to make a difference is for Congress to approve the free trade agreement with Colombia,” Secretary Gutierrez said.
