Manufacturers for Trade Enforcement is a coalition of leading U.S. industry groups opposed to the automatic granting of market economy status for China at the end of 2016. Collectively, our industries directly employ more than 1 million American workers. U.S. law requires that the Department of Commerce make a market economy status (MES) determination based on established criteria, which China has not met. China continues to provide state support of its own manufacturers, which distorts global markets and hurts U.S. manufacturers.
