The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) launched a new nationwide grassroots educational initiative to help all Americans understand the importance of trade to creating jobs and driving U.S. economic growth. The 28-state “America Wins with Trade” bus tour, launched in New York City.

CEA said it hopes the bus tour and campaign will highlight the importance of trade to American companies and most importantly, American workers. CEA has called on Congress to reject isolationism and enact trade agreements that expand the economy and create American jobs.

Spurred by trade, CEA said the consumer electronics industry is projected to generate US$1.4 trillion in direct business activity this year and directly employ more than 4.4 million Americans. Trade plays a critical role in the industry’s health, CEA said, for example one in seven of those jobs, or about 616,000 jobs, is directly tied to America’s trade overseas.

CEA has called on Congress to pursue a pro-growth trade policy that includes aggressively pursuing bilateral trade agreements, reauthorizing trade promotion authority, eliminating non-tariff barriers, and upholding and enforcing trade agreements.
