Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin met U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., and several Congressmen in Jacksonville, Fla., to discuss global trade.

Yeargin was the only non-elected official invited to serve on a panel that discussed the U.S., Mexico, Canada Trade Agreement.

Vice President Pence used the event as an opportunity to share the Administration’s view of current trade developments and particularly the Administration’s desire to ensure ratification of the USMCA.

Yeargin was invited to represent and speak for the marine industry and general business community.

“I was honored to represent Correct Craft, the marine industry, and the entire business community at this important event,” said Yeargin in a statement. “I appreciate Vice President Pence, Sen. Scott and the other elected officials’ interest in the opinion of both the marine industry and the broader business community regarding current trade developments.”

“Our Correct Craft team works hard at ‘Making Life Better’ and part of that includes working with our elected and other government officials to ensure we have a healthy marine industry,” said Yeargin. “The marine industry is significant to our national economy and we are always honored to share our thoughts on the important issues facing our country.”
