The members of the International Relations Task Force (IRTF) believe in the power of free markets and limited government to propel economic growth not just in the United States but around the globe. To that end, the IRTF promotes both bilateral and multilateral free trade frameworks, initiatives and partnerships that strengthen the intellectual property rights of our members worldwide and other policies that create and sustain prosperous societies. This is increasingly important as more and more American companies expand their operations overseas and as states recognize that robust international trade programs are an effective way to grow their economies. Along with the support of ALEC’s traditional public and private sector members, the IRTF has cultivated relationships with legislators and other officials and organizations around the world that can serve as partners on a wide range of issues. ALEC’s international policy work is persuasive abroad precisely because our policy directives are backed by our public and private sector members — American state legislators from all 50 states and some of the world’s largest corporations.
Together, the International Relations Task Force and the Federal Relations Working Group afford ALEC the opportunity to participate in the international and federal debates on those issues that are most important to our members and relevant to our core principles.
The ALEC International Relations Task Force maintains relationships and exchanges ideas with legislators from nations around the world. We are especially interested in seeking to expand our reach to political leaders in emerging economies who are aligned with ALEC’s limited government, free market principles. If you would like to become an ALEC International Delegate, please contact ALEC’s International and Federal Relations Task Force Director, Karla Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 202-742-8518 for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
