NAM Creates Special WTO Trade Group

By John S. McClenahen With the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Doha Round of global trade negotiations apparently headed for a re-start next month, the Washington, D.C.-based National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has created a special action group to look after manufacturers' interests. The WTO Action Group will be part of NAM's International Economic Policy Committee structure and work with Congress and the Bush administration to focus on such manufacturing priorities as cutting tariffs sharply, reducing non-tariff trade barriers, and taking red tape out of trade and customs facilitation, says Arnold Allemang, executive vice president of Dow Chemical Co. and chairman of NAM's international economic policy panel.
