Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) delivers messages in support of WTO case against China auto parts
Since the beginning of the year, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has been amassing postcards from constituents who wanted to tell President Obama to investigate China’s massive subsidies for its auto parts industry.
AAM’s field team has been collecting signed postcards from Americans who are concerned about surging auto parts imports from China. Thankfully, President Obama announced a trade case this past Monday on China’s illegal auto parts subsidies.
To let the president know how important this case is, AAM is personally delivering thousands of these postcards, along with a letter from AAM Executive Director Scott Paul, today—a tangible demonstration of widespread support for the president's decision to initiate a World Trade Organization (WTO) case against China.
An excerpt from the letter:
The auto and auto parts sector...is one of our country’s greatest engines of economic growth. It is also a catalyst for innovation. Parts suppliers, large and small, are the foundation of many communities across the country. From the semiconductors that advance the technological revolution in today’s cars to the carpets that line the floors, the diversity of the sector employs directly and indirectly, well over a million Americans. Their future employment and success is at risk because of China’s policies and practices. Many of these companies are small entities that do not have the expertise, or the resources, to fight for fair trade on their own. Your decision to initiate action will make a huge difference for these firms and their workers.
