WASHINGTON, DC, September 18, 2018 - "The Administration is correct to focus on market access, intellectual property rights, and tech requirements that have been articulated in the 301. The use of tariffs at this juncture is counterproductive. It will lead to further distortions in trade and harm to the American economy," says Craig Allen.
"It is imperative that the two governments meet as soon as possible to discuss the legitimate interests of the United States, including market access, technology transfer and intellectual property protection. We urge the administration to abandon the use of tariffs as a tool of commercial diplomacy."
