NRF marks "Imports Work for America Week"
From a low-cost pair of sneakers to the latest smartphone or tablet, imports drive global competitiveness, increase customer choice and reduce consumer prices.
Helping to underscore the importance of imports, NRF has joined with other business organizations this week to mark “Imports Works for America Week,” which promotes the role imports play in supporting the U.S. economy and job creation.
As an industry that supports 42 million working Americans, the retail industry knows firsthand the benefits of imports and trade.
Detailing the importance of imports to the retail industry and our customers, NRF Vice President, International Trade Counsel Erik Autor has authored some insightful comments on Imports Work for American Jobs and Imports Work To Make American Families’ Lives Better, which are both featured on the "Imports Work" website.
