Scott Leads Finance Committee in Urging President Trump to Name Ambassador to the OECD to Defend U.S. Tax Interests Abroad

WASHINGTON — This week, U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) led members on the Senate Finance Committee in urging President Trump to name the United States Ambassador to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

“Under the Trump economy, the United States has seen unprecedented growth and regained its reputation of being the most competitive nation in the world in which to do business in. With that comes the important task of ensuring that our tax interests abroad are aimed at keeping America first. We have already seen the European Union (EU) take steps to target U.S. companies because they see this administration’s pro-growth policies as a threat to their own economy.

I urge the President to name a strong and powerful Ambassador to the OECD to ensure that American interests are represented in the global markets.”
