Support for action on subsidized auto parts from China

Posted by scapozzola on 10/10/2012

This week, the Alliance for American Manufacturing's (AAM) Michael Mitchell thanked Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) for her efforts in support of action on subsidized auto parts imports from China.

Schakowsky is one of a bipartisan group of 188 Senators and Members of Congress who sent a letter to President Obama earlier this year expressing “serious concern” about China’s massive subsidies for its auto parts sector.

Last month, the Obama Administration announced that it was launching a case at the World Trade Organization (WTO) to investigate China's auto parts sector.
