China engages in unfair trade and investment practices, preventing U.S. companies from competing on a level playing field and hurting U.S. workers. Business Roundtable urges policymakers to preserve and fully implement the Phase One Agreement and partner with U.S. allies and trading partners to press for further structural reforms in China. Policymakers should develop a strategy that resolves economic issues while enabling long-term American competitiveness and access to customers in China who want to buy goods and services from American workers, farmers and businesses.
Trade & International
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, over 41 million American jobs depended on trade. Restoring trade can help accelerate economic growth, support high-paying U.S. jobs, reduce inflation and secure long-term prosperity. Business Roundtable urges policymakers to work with key partners and allies to expand rules-based trade and investment, which will empower Americans to sell to more customers around the world, ensure a level playing field and increase access to affordable goods and services for families.
