Trade treaties with foreign countries are one piece of U.S. trade policy. They are business contracts between countries. Businesses negotiate contracts to carry out a business strategy for growth, not to shrink their business. However, the U.S. government continues to negotiate trade treaties that will shrink our economy, offshore our domestic policy and sovereignty, and increase the foreign mercantilism problem. CPA supports trade treaties that increase U.S. growth and job creation while preserving our sovereignty.
