Trade

International trade is vital to the consumer technology sector in the U.S. and global economies. Unfair trade practices should be addressed at the World Trade Organization, not by taxing U.S. businesses with increased tariffs.

As Congress and the White House address unfair trade practices — including China's intellectual property theft and passing the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) — they must consider the economic impact of barriers to trade on American jobs and companies. 

Tariffs are a tax that could cost 1 million U.S. jobs.

The Trade War

America's trade war with China is hurting businesses and consumers across the country. Although the president is right to address China's forced technology transfer and intellectual property theft, retaliatory tariffs are the wrong approach.

Tell Congress it's time for a "New NAFTA" that addresses the digital economy — and USMCA needs their support.
