The American Apparel & Footwear Association praised the nomination of Katherine Tai for U.S. Trade Representative by President-elect Joseph R. Biden today.
“Katherine Tai has great mastery of the contours – both economic and political – around which U.S. trade policy is created and effectively implemented,” said Steve Lamar, president and CEO of the American Apparel & Footwear Association.
“She is an experienced trade lawyer, has demonstrated experience forging trade policies that reflect input from a variety of stakeholders, and is known to strike a careful balance between enforcement and facilitation.
"As our economy recovers from COVID, it is urgent – now more than ever – that we enable smart, responsible, and effective trade policies that remove barriers, advance our principles, and benefit American businesses, workers, and consumers. We believe Katherine is the right pick to hit the ground running on this critical task."
