Every day without normal trade relations for Russia means lost opportunities for the U.S. economy
In anticipation of the vote tomorrow in the U.S. House of Representatives to grant Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) to Russia, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) has compiled a clearinghouse of helpful materials on this topic produced by our task force on Russia.
Co-chaired by Senator Charles Robb (D-VA) and Secretary of Commerce Don Evans, this bipartisan group recommends graduating Russia from Jackson-Vanik and granting them PNTR as part of a comprehensive policy framework that includes legislation to promote more effectively Russian human rights and civil society. This will allow U.S. manufacturing, agricultural and business sectors to take full advantage of Russia's membership in the World Trade Organization (WTO), while also promoting the welfare of the Russian people and advancing American values.
