In a speech to Pennsylvania steelworkers in 2009, Ambassador Kirk promised to deliver this report and another on sanitary and phytosanitary barriers to American exports as part of the Obama Administration's effort to sharpen its enforcement of American trade rights and to grow well-paying jobs here at home.
