Statement On The Signing Of The U.S.-China Phase One Trade Agreement

Washington, DC – IA Director, Trade Policy Jordan Haas released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He signing of the U.S.-China Phase One Trade Agreement as part of the 301 investigation of China:

“IA welcomes today’s signing of the U.S.-China Phase One Trade Agreement. This deal will help to limit market access barriers for American internet companies and better protect innovative U.S. intellectual property. We hope this agreement will ultimately result in the easing of harmful tariffs while creating enforceable rules around cyber intrusions, forced technology transfers, and other aspects of China’s intellectual property policy. We look forward to reviewing the final text of the deal to ensure it includes substantive and enforceable commitments to structural changes.”
