As a growing tech hub, housing some of the most important entry points in America, and a booming agriculture industry, trade is incredibly important to South Florida. I support establishing new partnerships around the world to expand markets for our producers, as long as our trade agreements are both free and fair, protecting American producers from unfair trade practices.

We also cannot allow adversaries like China to manipulate our trade agreements to undercut American firms. I support taking bold measures to address anti-competitive behaviors in global trade. We must give establish an equal playing field in the global market for U.S. manufacturers, farmers, and workers.
