International Trade and Investment

Selling more of our goods and services around the world is crucial to creating American jobs, helping small businesses, and keeping the United States ahead of its global competitors.

The Chamber wants to negotiate trade and investment agreements that are fair and accountable, that create a level playing field, and that put American families and workers first.

Trade policy can and must benefit all consumers and businesses, including small businesses, which represent 98% of all U.S. exporters.

    Why the U.S. Chamber supports USMCA (U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement)

    When is a trade pact less like a marriage and more like a renewal of vows? Perhaps that’s the best metaphor for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement (USMCA), the successor to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Given the close integration of the three economies, this new agreement is more about renewing and enhancing decades-long ties than starting a new life together.

    Lift the tariffs, and restart trade talks with China now

    Amid all the talk of a possible recession, it’s important for everyone to remember this: Economic expansions do not die of natural causes. They often die because of missteps and policy mistakes.
