Ambassador Kirk Stops by Lunch for ACTA Negotiators
The 10th round of Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) negotiations kicked off today in Washington, DC. During an informal lunch, Ambassador Kirk stopped by to welcome the negotiators to Washington. He thanked the negotiators for all of their hard work to stop piracy and counterfeiting while encouraging them to continue to work to bring a successful conclusion to the negotiating round. With the conclusion of ACTA, American businesses who specialize in intellectual property, and the 18 million Americans employed in this industry, will have better safeguards as they work to create innovative products and help to fuel the economic recovery.
