Secretary of State Hillary Clinton assured Canadians on Saturday that the United States will work with its northern neighbor to alleviate concerns surrounding the Buy American policy in the US economic stimulus bill. Canada, as well as some of America's other trading partners, have complained that the policy is shutting their companies out of lucrative US contracts. The US economic recovery bill, passed in February, gives priority to steel and manufactured goods made in the United States when bought with federal funds. "I'm well aware of the concerns that there may be elements of the international trade obligations or absences of agreements that should be looked at so that we can promote more procurement and other kinds of trade interactions," Clinton said during a joint press conference with Canada's foreign affairs minister, Lawrence Cannon.
