ONE, Bono praise Obama’s pick of Mike Froman as US Trade Representative

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).”
