WASHINGTON, D.C. May 17, 2019—The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) interim President & CEO Patty Long:

“Mexico and Canada are our nation’s biggest trading partners. The U.S. plastics industry applauds the Trump Administration for recognizing the importance of these relationships and for eliminating a roadblock that might’ve jeopardized the passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The USMCA is an important accord that will support American businesses and create jobs, and we hope the alleviation of these steel and aluminum tariffs serves as a stepping stone toward its enactment.”
