WASHINGTON – The ONE Campaign welcomes President Barack Obama’s nomination of Mike Froman as U.S. Trade Representative.
Bono, lead singer of U2 and cofounder of ONE, said:
“Mike is an inspired choice for America’s top economic negotiator. He brings a head for business and a heart for humanity. Mike is fully behind the critical role of trade in combating extreme poverty, and very involved in President Obama’s global development agenda.
We’re excited about working with him on trade-related policies of benefit to both the US and countries in Africa, such as the extension of the Africa Growth and Opportunities Act (AGOA).”
ONE is a global advocacy and campaigning organization backed by more than 3 million people from around the world dedicated to fighting extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. For more information visit ONE.org.
