GOVERNOR CHRISTIE TO ADVISE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ON TRADE
Amidst evolving protectionist world [view]
TRENTON - Yesterday, Governor Chris Christie was appointed to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations (ACTPN) by President Barack Obama.
"It is an honor to be named by the President to the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations," said Governor Christie. "New Jersey in many ways is considered the gateway to international trade. As a member of the Advisory Committee, I look forward to sharing New Jersey's experiences while working to ensure that national policies enhance and improve trade opportunities for New Jersey and throughout the country."
Administered by the U.S. Trade Representative, Ambassador Ron Kirk, the Advisory Committee provides policy advice on trade issues of overall national interest. Committee members, who represent a broad array of economic sectors impacted by trade, serve two-year terms.
The private sector advisory committee system was created by Congress in 1974 and expanded under the Trade Act of 2002 to ensure that U.S. trade policy and trade negotiation objectives reflect U.S. commercial and economic interests. The three-tiered system is represented by the President's Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations (ACTPN); four policy advisory committees; and 22 technical and sectoral advisory committees.
-A Respectful Reminder to Gov Christie:

-That to uphold Governmental Law as an elected Representative by consent of the People; shall supersede Foreign constraints upon our society...
Where-by Court Law is derived from logic and clarity as its strengths, followed by confidence of action... The application of "Government Law" derives its strengths, reliant upon the core principal(s) of sovereign self-governance.
