Dear Political Candidates: On the Importance of Exports in the 2020 Election
As we approach the 2020 elections, here are a few trade policy suggestions to consider, based on data extracted from a “deep dive” into The Trade Partnership’s CDxports database.
Suggestion #1. Don’t “dump” on our neighbor to the North.
Suggestion #2. Other countries with which we are engaged in various international trade policy negotiations or other “discussions” are leading customers for the remaining states.
Suggestion #3. Carefully evaluate sector-specific trade policy options.
