Deloitte global CEO proposes transatlantic free trade area

Move would create jobs and foster sustainable economic growth, says Jim Quigley

In a speech to a transatlantic business conference, Deloitte global CEO Jim
Quigley urged fellow business leaders to consider forming a free trade area in
which services and eco-friendly products could be traded among transatlantic
countries.

Quigley said the goals of such a move would be to create jobs and foster
sustainable economic growth and counter protectionist sentiment brought on by
the global economic crisis.

He stressed that the United States and the European Union would be the engine
for economic recovery and sustainable growth, and represented 45% of world GDP.
