ABSTRACT
The article informs that two members of the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) have told U.S. President Barack Obama to take action against Chinese passenger and light truck imports at levels that won't disrupt the current U.S. retail tire market. Roy Littlefield, executive vice president of the Tire Industry Association (TIA), said that loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs occurred over the course of many years as part of a deliberate decision by manufacturers to move low-cost tires overseas.
