Stabenow Applauds Key Ruling Against China’s Anti-Competitive Trade Practices

Friday, Jun 15, 2012

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today made the following statement after U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk announced that the United States won a World Trade Organization (WTO) case against China.  The WTO found in favor of the United States in a case protesting China's imposition of duties on imports of American-made steel.

 Senator Debbie Stabenow applauded the U.S. Trade Representative for winning the case, saying:

"This is a key ruling in the fight to crack down on China's anti-competitive trade practices.  It is extremely important that we aggressively stand up for American businesses and workers in the global economy to stop our jobs from being shipped overseas, and I applaud the administration and Ambassador Kirk for doing that."

 Senator Stabenow has long-championed efforts to ensure U.S. businesses and workers can become more globally competitive and create more jobs in America. Last year, Senator Stabenow introduced her American Competitiveness Plan to crack down on other countries' trade violations. One of the main provisions of Senator Stabenow's Plan, which called for a trade enforcement unit to hold countries that violate trade laws accountable, was created by President Obama earlier this year. Other provisions of Stabenow's plan include a bill to crackdown on China's currency manipulation (which passed the Senate last year with overwhelming bipartisan support) and provisions to strengthen penalties for foreign companies who steal American technology and intellectual property.
