WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chairman of the Senate Finance Subcommittee on International Trade, Customs, and Global Competitiveness and former Governor of Delaware, released the following statement on the nomination of former Delaware Governor Jack Markell as the U.S. Ambassador to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD):

“I am thrilled with President Biden’s nomination of former Governor Jack Markell to this post, which is crucial to American economic leadership and our broader diplomatic efforts. As the Governor who led Delaware’s recovery from the 2008 financial crisis, Jack put in place policies and made investments that helped the First State become a more nurturing environment for job creation and job preservation. Combined with his experience as Treasurer and his leadership in the private sector, I have every confidence that he will represent American economic interests well and build partnerships that will help reassert U.S. leadership on the world stage.”
