Release Date: 10/04/2011
Contact Information: EPA Press Office, press@epa.gov, 202-564-6794

"These agreements serve President Obama's top priority of creating jobs across the U.S. and contain an equal commitment to enforcing environmental standards. The health and environmental commitments will continue to foster opportunities for America's leading environmental technology industry, which exports innovative pollution control technology to countries around the world. These trade agreements will make it easier for American inventors and innovative manufacturers to sell their 'Made in the USA' products in the global marketplace while holding all parties to the same level of accountability for meeting environmental commitments as for the other commitments.”
