​Truckers Hail “Phase One” Trade Deal with China

January, 2020

Arlington, VA American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued this statement on December 13, 2019 following reports that the United States and China have reached a “phase one” trade deal:

“We congratulate President Trump and his team of negotiators on securing this hard-fought agreement, which is a big step toward resolving the ongoing trade impasse with China. As the nation’s leading mover of freight, the trucking industry places enormous value on free and fair trade and knows why it’s critically important for the long-term growth of our economy. Coming on the heels of a major breakthrough on USMCA this week, today’s agreement is a significant victory for America’s truckers as we keep the economy moving forward.”
