Rosslyn, VA, September 19, 2000  Officials at the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) commended the Senate for today's vote to grant China Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) status. NEMA had actively urged the Senate to follow the House's lead in passing the measure, ensuring that the U.S. enjoys the benefits of Beijing's entry into the World Trade Organization. 

"NEMA lobbied hard for passage in both Houses of Congress and we are delighted with this result," said Malcolm O'Hagan, President of NEMA. "We welcome the opportunity to help our member companies take advantage of China's formal entry into the rules-based international trading system." "China's WTO accession and implementation of its commitments will present NEMA members with considerable new market opportunities, and further integrating China into the world economy will serve to benefit U.S. national security. It will also compel improvements in China's human rights record and environmental practices," O'Hagan added. 

NEMA is the largest trade association representing the interests of U.S. electrical industry manufacturers. Founded in 1926 and headquartered in Rosslyn, Virginia, its more than 450 member companies manufacture products and services used in the generation, transmission, distribution, control, and use of electricity. These products and services, by and large unregulated, are used in and for utility, industrial, commercial, institutional and residential installations. Electrical products built to NEMA standards continue to achieve international acceptance and have long supported the growth of the U.S. electrical infrastructure and the maintenance of domestic electrical safety. Annual shipments total over $100 billion in value.
