The Aluminum Agenda

The U.S. aluminum industry benefits from robust, fair and rules-based trade of aluminum and aluminum products. We support trade negotiations that reduce tariff and non-tariff barriers to U.S. exports, set enforceable rules, expand bilateral commercial relations and provide for mutually beneficial trading relationships.

Policy Objectives:

  • A government-to-government negotiated agreement with China that results in measurable and verifiable reductions in Chinese aluminum capacity in upstream and downstream segments of the value chain and eliminates market-distorting governmental support for commercially unviable producers.
  • Appropriate trade remedies that create a level playing field, including trade enforcement cases for product categories with demonstrated unfairly traded imports.
  • Trade agreements, policies and initiatives to open markets and facilitate trade for producers and customers that create demand growth for aluminum products.
  • Elimination of trade barriers for countries that operate fairly under global trade rules as market economies.
