November 14, 2005 – West Palm Beach, FL – Today, 2008 Presidential Contender, Daniel Imperato calls on President Lula of Brazil to maintain good relations with the United States and vice versa.
“While Brazil has a great opportunity to blossom and be a prosperous country it also has a serious difficulty pertaining to poverty and education. The job and the task of being president of Brazil is not an easy one. While Brazil and its leadership recognize the positive benefits of free trade it also has its reservations for clear reasons,” stated Imperato.
Last week, President George W. Bush met with President Lula Ignacio da Silva, in Brazil in order to discuss free trade and other pertinent US/Brazil issues.
The meeting was following the Americas Summit which ended with no clear agreement for a free trade zone
Imperato stressed that the United States has not done enough to cooperate with its South American partners.
“In my opinion our administration and past administrations, have completely ignored our neighbors in South America who are more important to the United States than others because we are the western hemisphere, connected by land, diverse in culture, with massive natural resources, and the ability to increase manufacturing and productivity from the northern stretches of Canada to the most southern points of Chile,” asserted Imperato.
According to Imperato, combining US strength with that of our South American counterparts, who are making it difficult for US manufacturing to compete on price and wages, could improve the whole region in regards to manufacturing
“I have a plan pertaining to unionized labor and collaboration between the Americas to stabilize wages to increase manufacturing and create more jobs. I can assure you that when my name is on the ballot to represent that people of the United States of America in 2008 this will be an issue,” expressed Imperato.
Imperato, who has many years of experience doing business all over South America, particularly in Brazil, felt that the South American community has been leaning towards socialism for quite sometime now due to a lack of proper US involvement.
In addition, Imperato felt that the lack of US involvement has paved the way for South America’s strong ties with the European Union, particularly, Spain, Italy, and Germany, all of which have deep ties in the region.
Because of those ties and the lack of US involvement in the region, Imperato suggested that South America might be more favorable towards setting up a free trade agreement with the EU.
“While I see clearly that Europe has their hands deeper in the roots of our neighboring South America and that South America would be more interested in free trade with Europe because of the understanding of culture, the mutual respect between cultures, and the basic philosophy of European Society which differs immensely from the United States and the culture of its people,” said Imperato.
Additionally, Imperato also recognized the huge surge of investment in the region from countries like China, Japan, and Korea.
Imperato also recognized the turning over of the Panama Canal as a turning point in the devolution of US relations in the region. He felt that the turning over of the canal opened the door for the influx of investment from Asia Pacific.
Imperato finished his statement with the following remarks, “Working with our neighbors, we can achieve equality, proper wages, education, and a mutually beneficial trade balance that’s accepted by all parties concerned. These are deeply-rooted, serious issues that unconditionally need a man of the world who understands the difference between meat and potatoes of American culture and the European culture of caviar and fine wine. I believe that there is an opportunity here to capitalize for all parties concerned and I hope that one day the people of the United States of America will give me the opportunity to represent our country in the interest of the country and also our neighbors in South America.”
