Business leaders spoke to reporters outside the White House after meeting with President Bush on the administration’s trade policies. During the meeting, President Bush urged the business leaders to push Congress to pass presidential fast-track authority legislation for trade negotiations, which the administration feels is necessary for the continuation of trade negotiations in the Uruguay Round of trade talks and negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement. Mr. Baker said the reduction of tariff barriers between the U.S. and other countries would result in a large increase in world trade, and discounted the theory that increasing employment in Mexico would result in decreased employment in the U.S. Mr. Strauss said fast-track trade authority was a “win-win” proposition for the U.S. and Mexico, and was not a partisan issue since it clearly would be good for the country in any perspective. close
