USA: Global Pandemic G20 Leaders Must Take Collaborative Action against Covid 19: ACC
The American Chemistry Council in a response to the virtual G20 summit states that leaders must increase access to life saving products and equipment which are needed to fight coronavirus.
Washington/USA – Statement of American Chemistry Council (ACC) President and CEO, Chris Jahn, in response to the virtual G20 summit:
“U.S. chemicals manufacturers are calling for G20 leaders to increase international coordination and prioritise 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 recognised 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.”
