2019 Highlights

A Message from Chairman Joe Simons

As we share this message, the country is facing significant challenges and uncertainty as we cope with the Coronavirus pandemic. I could not be prouder of how the Federal Trade Commission and its dedicated staff have rallied behind our critical missions: to protect consumers and promote competition. The FTC rapidly transitioned to almost-entirely remote operations and, as of this writing, has barely missed a beat. Today more than ever, it is critical that the FTC continue to pursue vigorous enforcement, effective advocacy, and thoughtful policy work on behalf of American consumers. Times like these highlight the talent and resilience of our staff, and I am honored to work alongside them.
