AAM's Scott Paul interviewed on Illinois Radio Network
Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Executive Director Scott Paul was interviewed today on the Illinois Radio Network. For an audience of 81,100 listeners across 50 local affiliates, Paul explained why nearly 100,000 jobs in the Illinois auto parts sector are at risk due to China's cheating.
Imports of Chinese auto parts have surged by 25 percent in the last two years. Paul explained that Beijing has pumped $27 billion of subsidies into its auto-parts sector, with an additional $10 billion planned. China also blocks U.S. exports of autos and auto parts while favoring its own industry, in direct violation of the commitments it made to free markets when it joined the World Trade Organization (WTO).
