Wyden Praises USTR Enforcement on China

WASHINGTON - Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today praised the Office of U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) for a new trade enforcement action against China, which has used tax policies to discriminate against American aircraft. More information about the action is available here.

“As Congress works to rewrite the playbook on trade enforcement, I am glad to see USTR take action to address nontransparent and discriminatory Chinese tax policies that keep American manufacturers from competing on a level playing field.  Today’s actions underscore the need to swiftly bring into law a customs package with strong, effective enforcement tools to protect American jobs and priorities.”
