Senator David Perdue Comments On President Trump’s Efforts To Protect Intellectual Property

“Intellectual property has a significant impact on a country’s economic competitiveness.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s directive to investigate China’s intellectual property laws to determine their impact on U.S. commerce:

“I fully support President Trump’s efforts to protect America’s interests and engage our largest trade partner, China, on issues like intellectual property. Having lived and worked in Asia, I understand the importance of protecting intellectual property rights wherever they originate. Intellectual property has a significant impact on a country’s economic competitiveness. Ultimately, this action is in the best interest of both countries and the international community.”
