Washington, D.C. - Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) president Dennis Slater issued the following statement on the announcement that President-elect Joe Biden has nominated Katherine Tai to serve as the U.S. Trade Representative.

"The Association of Equipment Manufacturers applauds President-elect Biden's nomination of Katherine Tai to be the next U.S. Trade Representative. With thirty percent of all equipment manufactured in the United States destined for export, equipment manufacturers rely on mutually beneficial trade relationships to sell to more customers around the world and create more family-sustaining jobs in communities across America. USTR-designate Tai has built a reputation as a tough and effective negotiator with a proven track record of advancing U.S. trade interests and countering unfair trade practices, making her an excellent choice for U.S. Trade Representative. We look forward to working closely with USTR-designate Tai to advance free and fair trade policies and agreements that help accelerate American economic recovery and secure long-term prosperity for the 2.8 million men and women of our industry."

Equipment manufacturers support one in eight manufacturing jobs in America, and the 2.8 million men and women of our industry make the equipment that build, power, and feed the world and positively impact the lives of every American every day.
