G. Parrett, CEO of Deloitte and the chairman of the

protectionism if we want to encourage the free flow and benefits of
international investment,’ said Parrett, who represented the United States in

‘They need to affirm, in word and practice, their commitment to open, cross
border investment,’ he added.
