ACC Urges Collaboration Among G20 Leaders To Fight COVID-19

March 27, 2020
ACC President and CEO Chris Jahn is urging G20 leaders to work toward an agreement to lift tariffs and export restrictions so that more life-saving products can get into the hands of workers in healthcare and other essential industries helping to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to the virtual G20 summit, American Chemistry Council (ACC) President and CEO Chris Jahn releases the following statement:

“U.S. chemicals manufacturers are calling for G20 leaders to increase international coordination and prioritize multilateral responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare workers and workers in essential industries around the globe are in dire need of products and equipment that can help save lives, and chemicals and plastics have been recognized for their critical role in efforts to ramp up the production and distribution of those products.

“Life-saving products belong in the hands of the heroes who are saving lives – both in the United States and around the globe. We urge G20 leaders to fortify the global supply chains that make these products possible by lifting tariffs and export restrictions and avoiding barriers to trade that will otherwise impede efforts to save lives.”
