CEA Celebrates Senate Vote to Grant Russia Permanent Normal Trade Relations

ARLINGTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--

The following statement can be attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (News - Alert) (CEA)®, following the vote in the Senate to remove Russia from the Jackson-Vanik Amendment in order to establish permanent normal trade relations with Russia:

"CEA congratulates the Senate for its bipartisan support of this important piece of trade legislation, which will create economic opportunities between the United States and Russia. Without normalized trade relations, U.S. companies have been at a significant disadvantage since Russia joined the World Trade Organization earlier this year. Normalized trade relations with Russia, the ninth largest economy in the world, will open markets to American businesses, allowing them to compete and meet the demands of the growing consumer class of Russia, while helping create more jobs on the home front. CEA urges the president to sign this important job-creating legislation without delay."
