USCBC Statement on White House China Trade Announcement

WASHINGTON, DC, May 29, 2018 - Following today’s White House announcement of possible tariffs and other restrictions on commerce with China, USCBC President John Frisbie issued the following statement:

"We would like to see both sides put the threat of sanctions on hold and quickly get into negotiations to resolve these important issues. Tariffs and restrictions on commerce will have a real and negative impact on the economy and jobs. We need solutions that will put the trade relationship on a sounder path for mutual prosperity, not sanctions that will do more harm than good. We encourage both sides to use the coming weeks to achieve that goal."
