President to host Economic Forum in Waco Texas, aiming to create jobs, promote trade, and guarantee corporate responsibility

WASHINGTON – The Bush Administration once again demonstrated its strong leadership of the American economy when it announced the President\’s Economic Forum, beginning August 13 in Waco, Texas.

The economic summit, consisting of government policy makers, small investors, small business owners, workers, business ethicists, union members, corporate executives, and economists, will tackle today\’s biggest economic worries, and chart a course to implement the President\’s goals for the long term health of the economy.

"I commend President Bush for taking this decisive, pro-active step to address the nation\’s economic health," said taxpayer advocate Grover Norquist. "In the wake of corporate scandals and shaky capital markets, the President is stepping forward with an agenda for economic growth."

The President\’s Economic Forum will focus on those areas most vital to America\’s economic robustness in the short term, as well as the long term: economic recovery and job creation, corporate responsibility, trade promotion, investment and retirement security, deregulation, and new technologies.

"President Bush earned the trust of the American people by his leadership in the War on Terror," Norquist said. "Through his Economic Forum, the President will continue that remarkable leadership in the economic sphere."
