Correct Craft President and CEO, Bill Yeargin, spoke at a White House meeting on August 3 about the importance of free trade and infrastructure.
The meeting included US Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker, as well as staff from the Department of Commerce and the White House.
During the meeting, Yeargin presented his thoughts on the significance of free trade and its impact on both the boating industry and Correct Craft. Yeargin specifically focused on the importance of approving the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement, which the White House has sent to the Senate for ratification.
Yeargin also spoke about the insufficient investment in infrastructure by the US and its detrimental impact on present and future US trade.
After the White House presentation, Yeargin continued his focus on trade by meeting at the Korean embassy with Korean Ambassador Ahn Ho-young to discuss trade with Korea and specifically Correct Craft's efforts in the country.
"I was honoured to speak at the White House about the importance of free trade and infrastructure to the boating industry and Correct Craft,' says Yeargin. "These are critical issues that, if not addressed properly, can have detrimental long-term effects on our industry. I was also honoured to once again spend time with the Korean Ambassador and express my appreciation of his efforts to promote trade between the US and Korea.'
