Steel Companies Feeling Hurt From Trade Dispute With China

In all, Connecticut’s economy provides an estimated $1.5 billion in exports, with $900 million of that coming in the form of goods. Doug Barry, with the US-China Business Council, which boasts numerous Connecticut employers as members, says the state has a lot to lose if the tariffs remain in place, and the trade dispute continues. "Connecticut is a shining example of the growth of that trade because the trade with China over the last 10 years has grown by 111 percent versus about 20 percent to other parts of the world,” Barry said.
