ITC Manufacturing: Leaders in Wire Mesh Decking

Faruk Gole Attends the 2017 Government Affairs Conference in DC

American Wire Producers Association (AWPA) members, including our very own CEO Faruk Gole attended this year’s Government Affairs Conference last week in DC where they heard the latest on NAFTA, trade and tax reform.

According to AWPA, almost 100 AWPA members attended. Hill Visits this year were a great success – 34 participants made 73 visits to Congressional Offices to discuss NAFTA renegotiations, the 232 Investigation of Steel Imports, and other issues affecting the steel wire manufacturing industry.  In the general session, attendees heard from Ken Monahan at NAM about the prospects and difficulties of renegotiating NAFTA; David Kemps with Morgan Stanley on current legislative issues, especially tax reform; and Fred Waite, AWPA Counsel, provided an update on the status and schedule for the current AD/CVD Investigation of Steel Wire Rod from 10 Countries. Along with the committee meetings and evening receptions, there was plenty of time business. For more information on the conference and what was discussed, read the full article here:
