A number of organizations and individuals in the trade policy community have been working on a new initiative called Imports Work for America Week with the goal of providing a chance to talk about how imports, in addition to exports, create benefits for the U.S. economy.

Imports Work for America Week will take place May 7 to May 11 and each day will have a common theme – detailed on the website here.

Since imports are near and dear to the heart of the Coalition for GSP and our members, we’ll be posting a new article everyday this week highlighting how imports work for American jobs, families, manufacturing, and economic development.

However, we’re also looking for like-minded companies and associations to get involved, and there’s lots of ways you can do it, such as adding your name to the member list,
following the initiative on twitter and joining the conversation by tweeting with the hashtag #importswork, and submitting photos that tell how imported products benefits America.
