Industrial Competitiveness

The Administration's trade policy aims to advance and defend the interests of American manufacturers and their workers by expanding export opportunities and strengthening enforcement of trade rules. 

USTR is working to level the playing field for U.S. manufacturers by:

  • Eliminating Tariff and Non-Tariff Barriers
  • Negotiating WTO Rules to Benefit U.S. Manufacturers
  • Countering Foreign Trade Distorting Practices
  • Enforcing Trade Agreements

The President's Trade Policy Agenda makes clear that American trade remedy laws and other trade laws have to be vigorously enforced to ensure fair trade for U.S. manufacturers and their workers at home, while USTR also presses vigorously for new export markets by challenging discriminatory practices, industrial policies, and non-tariff barriers overseas. USTR is pursuing these actions and others to provide real results for American manufacturing.
