WCIT Responds to Trump Administration’s Tariff Announcement on Steel and Aluminum

SEATTLE – “The Washington Council on International Trade strongly disagrees with the Administration’s tariff announcement on steel and aluminum. Tariffs will negatively impact Washington state companies and consumers alike by driving up prices of goods and inviting retaliation against Washington state exports and investment. Forty percent of jobs in Washington are trade-related. In Washington state, we depend on our global competitiveness. Trade – both exports and imports – paves the way for Washington-made goods and services to reach foreign markets, provides Washingtonians with products that raise our quality of life, and sustains family wage jobs in numerous local industries. These proposed tariffs will undermine Washington state jobs and prosperity,” says Lori Otto Punke, President of WCIT.
