The Wall Street Journal: UPS CEO urges Congress to pass Asian trace pact or get left behind

United Parcel Service Inc. Chief Executive David Abney is pushing for Congress to pass a new Asian trade agreement by the end of the year, saying that if the U.S. doesn’t act now it will be left in the dust.

“We have a choice. We can lead the way as a country and embrace this global economy we live in. Or we can focus more on the challenge versus the opportunity and have some other country create jobs for their employees and create jobs for their companies,” Abney said in an interview.

If the U.S. doesn’t take action, he warned, Asian nations will sign their own trade agreements.
