Trade

  • IPC supports a fair, open and rules-based international trading system.

  • IPC supports the modernization of NAFTA through the new US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

  • IPC supports bilateral engagement with China to address disputes related to IP theft, market access, and government subsidies.

  • IPC is concerned about the negative impacts on our members from current and escalating tariff battles among the world’s leading trade powers. The electronics industry is characterized by highly complex supply chains and narrow profit margins, and rising tariffs are causing considerable disruptions and uncertainties.
