Internet Association Statement On Administration’s China Trade Actions

Washington, DC – Internet Association Senior Vice President, Global Government Affairs Melika Carroll issued the following statement in response to the administration’s trade actions on China:

“The internet industry has serious concerns with the impact of these tariffs – and potential retaliatory actions – on American jobs, consumers, and the digital economy. There’s no doubt the U.S. government can and should address China’s trade practices, but consumers and American job creators should not be caught in the crossfire. The internet sector represents 3 million jobs and 6 percent of GDP, and these tariffs will leave our customers worse off, stifle growth, and make it harder for the digital economy to succeed.”
