Following a summit of North America’s three leading plastics industry trade groups—PLASTICS Industry Association (PLASTICS), Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) and Asociación Nacional de Industrias del Plástico A.C. (ANIPAC)—a platform of policy priorities was drafted for the forthcoming modernization of the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
“Our three organizations stand unified in wanting to support the growth and development of our industry across North America,” said PLASTICS President and CEO William R. Carteaux. “Plastics are the proven sustainable material of choice for an infinite array of applications throughout North America, and the world at large. Strengthening NAFTA will enable us to work together to develop new solutions to our world’s environmental challenges while also benefiting the millions of workers in the three NAFTA member nations.”
