WCIT’s Statement on the June 1st Tariffs

SEATTLE — “The Washington Council on International Trade strongly disagrees with the Administration’s decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada, Mexico, and the European Union, all of which are some of Washington’s most important trading partners. Here at home, where 40 percent of all jobs are trade related, the Administration’s actions stand to inflict a disproportionate amount of harm on our workers, our businesses, and our communities. More broadly, these tariffs will do little more than invite retribution from our rule-abiding allies and hinder the global cooperation required to stand up against unfair trade practices from other nations. As an upstanding member of the global trade community, we should be setting a better example. This is not the way to do business.”
