NAFTA renegotiation backed by the U.S. Lumber Coalition

The United States (U.S.) Lumber Coalition has thrown its support behind the Trump Administration’s and Congress’ efforts to develop the U.S. economy by improving opportunities for the U.S. under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

“These issues are of utmost importance to American companies, workers and communities in the wood products and forestry industries, which are critical elements of the U.S. manufacturing base and many state economies,” the organisation said in a released statement, according to the Woodworking Network. “The Coalition is united in opposition to Canada’s unfair lumber-trade practices, including the gross under-pricing of timber on government-owned lands.”

The U.S. Lumber Coalition is an alliance made up of lumber producers from across the country, both large and small and contains hundreds of thousands of employees, and tens of thousands of forest owners.
