Froman Nominated to serve as U.S. Trade Rep

President Obama made an inspired decision last week to nominate Michael Froman, the White House Deputy National Security Adviser-International Economics, to serve as the next U.S. Trade Representative.   In Mike Froman, America’s wireless innovation community will find a champion and a friend.   As a principled policy leader, and also as an astute business leader, Mike understands the importance of keeping barriers low for the free and fair trade of America’s cutting-edge mobile products, infrastructure, services, technologies, and content.   He also knows that our nation’s intellectual property — so important to our economy, to the future of innovation, and to maintaining our technological leadership globally — must be tenaciously protected.   I congratulate Mike on his nomination, and for his continued commitment to public service, and I urge the Senate to move quickly in confirming this worthy nominee.  All of us at Mobile Future — and throughout the American wireless ecosystem —  look forward to working with him and his team in the days ahead.
