NEMA Urges USTR to Hone China Tariffs with Narrow Targets and Time Limits

On August 21, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) testified on behalf of its Member companies that would be materially affected by additional tariffs proposed by the Office of U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) on products made in China. The Administration is considering whether to place 10 or 25 percent additional tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, of which $18 billion are of direct interest to NEMA Member companies, in its efforts to bring about changes in China’s intellectual property and industrial policies and practices. “NEMA agrees with the Administration’s intent to pursue and produce negotiated outcomes that restore and, whenever possible, advance market openness and fairness,” NEMA President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff concluded. “We encourage U.S.-China discussions in Washington, DC, this week to earnestly construct a path toward those outcomes.” https://www.nema.org/pages/default.aspx
