Cameron Says ‘Smell the Coffee’ as He Vows Tax Fight, Trade Push

Prime Minister David Cameron said the U.K. will use its presidency of the Group of Eight this year to press for a trade deal between the European Union and the U.S. and a global crackdown against tax evasion and avoidance.

“We’re going to push for more openness on trade,” he told the World Economic Forum today in Davos, Switzerland. “The EU and U.S. together make up nearly a third of all global trade. Agreeing all the EU deals on the table could increase our GDP by 2 percent and create over 2 million jobs across the EU.”
