Trade is about much more than just exports. Imports Work for America by supporting U.S. jobs, lowering costs for American families and manufacturing, and promoting economic development both at home and abroad.
Imports Work for America Week is an initiative by a coalition of organizations representing tens of thousands of businesses employing millions of American workers across the United States who depend on access to imports to compete globally. Imports Work for America Week will publicize the positive role that U.S. imports play in:
· supporting U.S. jobs,
· lowering costs for working families,
· expanding U.S. manufacturing, and
· promoting economic development.
