SMA President Quoted in Inside U.S. Trade

Speaking to Margaret Spiegelman of Inside U.S. Trade, SMA President Philip K. Bell thanked the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office, the Commerce Department and other federal agencies for keeping the American steel industry informed about the progress of trade talks with Europe “on a consistent basis” and said he hopes negotiators “remain ambitious.”

Bell also acknowledged that “these are tough negotiations.” Excess steel capacity in nonmarket economies and decarbonization have been the focus of the negotitations.
