Bush Argues for Economic Openness on Asia Trip

In a speech at the National University of Singapore, President Bush made the case for open trade between nations. The remarks appeared to be aimed as much at the new Democratic majority in Congress as they were at this audience.

President Bush is in Singapore for two days, as part of a trip that includes stops in Vietnam and Indonesia. In Hanoi, Vietnam, the president will attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.
