Walorski: Phase One Agreement Will Hold China Accountable

Applauds President Trump’s Commitment to Cracking Down on China’s Unfair Trade Practices

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today applauded the Trump administration’s Phase One agreement with China, highlighting in a Ways and Means Committee hearing the importance of holding China accountable for unfair trade practices such as intellectual property theft, agricultural trade barriers, and forced technology transfers.

“I don’t think it’s any secret that China has been predatory in its trade practices,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “President Trump promised, like others, that he’d be tough on China. Unlike others, President Trump has kept that promise. We couldn’t continue to let China play this game of making promises with one hand, while stealing American technology, jobs, blood, sweat, and tears with the other. It’s not a sustainable strategy for our economy, and with the Phase One deal, they’re not going to get away with it any longer.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
