PLASTICS: China Trade Deal “A Step in the Right Direction”

January 15, 2020

Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) President & CEO Tony Radoszewski:

“This agreement is a step in the right direction, and we hope it paves the way forward for a reduction, or elimination, in tariffs, an increase in market access, and a less adversarial relationship between the world’s two largest economies. The plastics industry is an important driver of global growth and it relies on free, stable trade relationships in order to innovate and employ more workers. We look forward to further negotiations that level the playing field for U.S. plastics companies to compete in global trade.”
