Gov. Ricketts Comments on Finalization of “Phase One” China Deal

 

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following the news that President Donald J. Trump had achieved a “Phase One” agreement on trade with China.

 

“President Trump’s relentless focus on right-sizing our trade relationship with China is critically important for Nebraska.  Since 2012, China’s imports from Nebraska have declined.  Nebraskans would like to see more consistent trade, and a Phase One agreement creates the opportunity for that to happen.  The U.S. must stay the course on addressing remaining priorities in our national interest in Phase Two.”​
