                Proclamation 9752 of May 18, 2018

                
World Trade Week, 2018

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                America's trade relationships are critical to our 
                economic vitality and world leadership. During World 
                Trade Week, we reaffirm our Nation's unwavering 
                commitment to trading regimes that are free, fair, and 
                reciprocal.

                Our Nation has entered a new era in trade policy that 
                is based on the recognition that our economic security 
                is critical to our national security. My trade agenda 
                aims to accelerate American exports through policies 
                that are focused on rebuilding our industries, 
                strengthening the defense industrial base in the United 
                States, and equipping our workforce with state-of-the-
                art skills. As part of this strategy, I will continue 
                to renegotiate and modernize our trade agreements to 
                meet the challenges of the 21st century. My 
                Administration is also enforcing our well-established 
                trade laws once again, as well as eliminating 
                burdensome and unnecessary regulations and foreign 
                barriers to our products and services. We are focused 
                on promoting American industries and goods; as a result 
                of vigorous tax, trade, and regulatory policies, we are 
                attracting a new wave of investment into our Nation's 
                commercial enterprises.

                Over the past year, the United States has made 
                tremendous strides in restoring our Nation's economy. 
                American firms, however, are still vastly 
                underrepresented in international markets. My 
                Administration is taking concrete actions to restore 
                America's capacity to compete in an increasingly 
                international market. We are dedicated to a renewed and 
                equitable North American Free Trade Agreement that 
                promotes the export of American products rather than 
                American jobs. The recent agreement in principle on the 
                United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement offers an 
                opportunity to rebalance an unfair trade relationship. 
                By strongly enforcing trading rules, our Nation's 
                businesses and manufacturers will be better positioned 
                to gain strength domestically and in export markets 
                throughout the world.

                The United States will no longer tolerate any foreign 
                nations gaining unfair advantages on American 
                industries by stealing or forcing the transfer of our 
                companies' technology or intellectual property, 
                subsidizing their exporters, illegally dumping products 
                into our markets, and building excessive and 
                unnecessary capacity. These unfair and distortionary 
                trade practices flood global markets, depress prices, 
                and harm our companies and workers. We will not allow 
                these practices to compromise our leadership in 
                intellectual property, digital products, innovative 
                technology, manufacturing, agriculture, and numerous 
                industrial sectors.

                My Administration recognizes the importance of 
                prioritizing the interests of American workers and 
                businesses by promoting reciprocal trade based on open, 
                fair, and competitive markets. By adhering to these 
                fundamental principles of international trade, we will 
                expand trade in a way that is fair for the United 
                States and leads to a more effective and balanced world 
                trading system.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim May 20 through May 
                26, 2018, as World Trade Week. I encourage Americans to 
                observe

                this week with events, trade shows, and educational 
                programs that celebrate the benefits of trade to our 
                country.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                eighteenth day of May, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
                second.
