ATLANTA — The only way for the Americas to compete with Asia is to join together and stop competing with each other.
The message of unity over division was hammered home at the second annual Competitiveness Forum of the Americas, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Commerce this week at the Hyatt Regency hotel here. Officials stressed the need to act fast to shore up U.S. trade given rising fuel and labor costs in Asia that are creating opportunities for sourcing close to home.
