Trade Imperatives for American Manufacturers
U.S. industrial production has risen by two-thirds in the past 30 years. Manufacturing has bounced back from the pandemic recession and today employs 12.6 million Americans, with average earnings topping $30 per hour.
International trade is crucial to American economic growth and competitiveness. Here’s how international business, trade, and investment can drive sales and job creation.
As other nations race to achieve their own market-opening trade deals, the United States cannot be left behind. The U.S. Chamber is dedicated to pursuing new trade and investment agreements that uphold and improve our standard of living and our standing in the world. Trade agreements must establish high standards, protect American innovation, and be fully enforceable.
India and Africa offer relatively untapped markets and unique trade opportunities for U.S. businesses.
