Tommy Thompson on Free Trade

Former Secretary of H.H.S.; former Republican Governor (WI)

 


Strong trade policies help keep state economy strong

Wisconsin exports have tripled since 1987, placing Wisconsin among the top half of all trading states in the nation. In 1999, Wisconsin companies exported more than $9.6 billion in products, which was a strong showing despite depressed Asian and European markets. Many economic experts have credited Wisconsinís dramatic increase in trade with helping build a strong economy that has withstood national economic downturns.
