Mr Paul Nathanson, spokesperson for the Coalition of American Metal Manufacturers and Users has issued the following statement on the agreement to end US Section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico. It said “The Coalition welcomes the agreement to remove the Section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs from Canada and Mexico. We urge the Trump administration to terminate the remaining Section 232 steel and aluminum tariffs on our other trading partners as quickly as possible. These tariffs are damaging the US manufacturing sector, and particularly downstream US steel and aluminum-consuming companies, by increasing prices and lead times for both domestic and imports of steel and aluminum and making the US an island of high steel prices.”

It added "We are also pleased that negotiators listened to US steel- and aluminum-using manufacturers and did not replace tariffs with quotas, which are even worse for US companies. This shows that our voices are being heard in Washington, DC.”
