U.S. Senator Rob Portman Meets with GCP Members

GCP hosted U.S. Senator Rob Portman at the new Lincoln Electric Training Center in Euclid for a roundtable table on trade policy. More than 20 GCP member companies participated in the discussion as well as Congressman Dave Joyce. The roundtable provided an opportunity for Senator Portman and Congressman Joyce to share the latest on trade policy discussions in Washington ranging from the impact of tariffs on business to what still needs to happen to get to a final NAFTA agreement, and potential trade agreements with China and the European Union. GCP member companies shared a variety of issues with Senator Portman on how the recent trade decisions were impacting their companies. The Senator and Congressman encouraged companies to continue reaching out to their offices on how they are being impacted to support advocacy efforts for fair and balanced trade policy that provides predictability and stability for businesses. 

GCP will continue to work with Senator Portman and other leaders in the Ohio congressional delegation to push for trade policy that supports the needs of Ohio companies.
