Trade & International Committee

Open markets for international trade and investment are essential for supporting U.S. economic growth and jobs. Business Roundtable supports policies that promote U.S. trade and investment, and create a level playing field for U.S. companies competing in global markets.

We rely on mutually beneficial trade relationships with our neighbors near and far because access to global markets means more opportunity for every American. From manufacturing and transportation to information technology, construction, and professional services to everything in between, every sector of our economy benefits from trade. Trade agreements lead to job creation, higher wages, and lower prices on the things we buy every day.

The President, Congress and the private sector must work together on a pro-growth economic agenda that includes a proactive and constructive U.S. trade agenda.

This document lays out key principles for U.S. leadership in achieving these objectives.
