NEMA Members compete in the global economy and support a comprehensive approach to international trade that results in fair and open global markets.
NEMA believes in global free enterprise based on a solid legal infrastructure and due process to define and protect property rights as well as negotiate and ensure adherence to international trade agreements. NEMA strives to eliminate barriers to international trade such as tariffs, quotas, and technical regulations that unfairly limit market access. NEMA works with governments and international organizations to strengthen property rights protections and enforcement. NEMA also supports U.S. institutions that provide trade financing, market development assistance, and risk mitigation services.
