It also strengthens our relationships with other countries, helping us to forge new partnerships based on a commitment to generate new prosperity and a better way of life for people in America and throughout the world. This year, as we mark the tenth anniversary of the World Trade Organization, World Trade Week provides an opportunity to recognize the many benefits of free and fair trade in strengthening economies and improving lives. Because 95 percent of the world’s population resides outside of our borders, trade creates opportunities for American farmers, small businesses, and manufacturers to sell their products to consumers across the world. Trade also raises up the world’s poor, bringing hope to those in despair. Millions of American jobs depend on exports, and my Administration is committed to opening markets around the world for American products. Since 2001, we have completed free trade agreements with 12 nations, representing a combined market of 124 million consumers for American products, goods, and services. These agreements will create millions of new consumers for America’s farmers, manufacturers, and small business owners, and deepen our friendships with countries in other parts of the world. As we open up new markets to trade, we must always ensure that American workers are treated fairly. Our workers can compete with anyone, anywhere, so long as the rules are fair. My Administration will continue to enforce trade agreements and insist upon a level playing field for America’s workers. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 15 through May 21, 2005, as World Trade Week. I encourage all Americans to observe this week with events, trade shows, and educational programs that celebrate the benefits of trade to our Nation and the global economy.

                Proclamation 7900 of May 12, 2005

                
World Trade Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Free and fair trade creates jobs, raises living 
                standards, and lowers prices for families throughout 
                America. It also strengthens our relationships with 
                other countries, helping us to forge new partnerships 
                based on a commitment to generate new prosperity and a 
                better way of life for people in America and throughout 
                the world. This year, as we mark the tenth anniversary 
                of the World Trade Organization, World Trade Week 
                provides an opportunity to recognize the many benefits 
                of free and fair trade in strengthening economies and 
                improving lives.

                Because 95 percent of the world's population resides 
                outside of our borders, trade creates opportunities for 
                American farmers, small businesses, and manufacturers 
                to sell their products to consumers across the world. 
                Trade also raises up the world's poor, bringing hope to 
                those in despair.

                Millions of American jobs depend on exports, and my 
                Administration is committed to opening markets around 
                the world for American products. Since 2001, we have 
                completed free trade agreements with 12 nations, 
                representing a combined market of 124 million consumers 
                for American products, goods, and services. These 
                agreements will create millions of new consumers for 
                America's farmers, manufacturers, and small business 
                owners, and deepen our friendships with countries in 
                other parts of the world.

                As we open up new markets to trade, we must always 
                ensure that American workers are treated fairly. Our 
                workers can compete with anyone, anywhere, so long as 
                the rules are fair. My Administration will continue to 
                enforce trade agreements and insist upon a level 
                playing field for America's workers.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim May 15 through May 21, 2005, 
                as World Trade Week. I encourage all Americans to 
                observe this week with events, trade shows, and 
                educational programs that celebrate the benefits of 
                trade to our Nation and the global economy.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

                thousand five, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and twenty-ninth.
