November 11, 2021

WASHINGTON – United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai today released the following statement to commemorate Veterans Day:

“On this Veterans Day, we honor those who risked their lives to defend our nation and the freedoms and liberties we enjoy each day.
“Being a military family, President and Dr. Biden personally understand the challenges and sacrifices these incredible individuals make on behalf of our country. Our entire Administration holds a deep commitment to our veterans. As President Biden often says, our sacred obligation as a country is to prepare our troops for when they are deployed, and to take care of them and their families when they come home.
“That means ensuring our trade policies take into account the interests and experiences of our veterans, who contribute to our economy as workers, consumers, innovators, entrepreneurs, farmers, ranchers, and citizens.”
