Trade Toolkit Communications Tools

Trade is one policy area where we need Washington to help take the lead—to negotiate market-opening agreements with other countries and to pursue a robust trade agenda that puts our manufacturers on a level playing field in a highly competitive global economy.

Trade is not always an easy topic to discuss, but it is an important one. Manufacturers produce in a globally competitive economy, and we cannot sit on the sidelines. The United States must lead on trade to create new opportunities to grow manufacturing here.
