[ May 16, 2016   //   ]

The National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) applauds the Senate passage of the American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2016, legislation that will help protect the trade secrets of American companies.

“For companies of all sizes, the miscellaneous tariff bill process is a practical mechanism that preserves American jobs and investment and increases the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing,” said NFTC President Rufus Yerxa. “We look forward to the President signing it into law.”

“We applaud the Senate for passing this legislation, which will reform and modernize the miscellaneous tariff bill process in a way that achieves bipartisan support needed for congressional passage,” said Chuck Dittrich, NFTC Vice President for Regional Trade Initiatives.
