In conjunction with today’s agreement at the Universal Postal Union on international postal rates, Paul Steidler, Senior Fellow with the Lexington Institute, issued the following statement.
“This agreement will significantly help U.S. manufacturers, retailers, e-commerce companies and others. It is a win. It will be a catalyst for billions of dollars in increased annual U.S. sales, more jobs and higher tax revenues.
“The Trump Administration is to be commended for its patience and leadership in working intently over the past 16 months with the diverse and complex Universal Postal Union (UPU). The Administration has accomplished more with the UPU in the past year, than the U.S. has over the past 20 years. Furthermore, this agreement shows that by sticking to clear principles and stating them strongly, additional trade victories can be realized.”
