WASHINGTON, D.C. May 31, 2019—The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) Interim President & CEO Patty Long:

“The U.S. plastics industry strenuously urges the Trump Administration to abandon its proposed plan to impose across-the-board tariffs on Mexico, one of our industry’s most important trading partners. Not only would such tariffs cause immediate harm to the plastics supply chain, they would also jeopardize the ratification of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which our industry is counting on as a basis for future growth and investment in North America.”
