ACC urges G20 leaders to take collaborative on products needed for COVID-19

By Scott Jenkins |

American Chemistry Council (ACC; Washington, D.C.; www.americanchemistry.com) president and CEO Chris Jahn made a statement this morning aimed G20 leaders who are participating a virtual summit on coronavirus pandemic response.

Jahn says: “U.S. chemicals manufacturers are calling for G20 leaders to increase international coordination and prioritize multilateral responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare workers and workers in essential industries around the globe are in dire need of products and equipment that can help save lives, and chemicals and plastics have been recognized for their critical role in efforts to ramp up the production and distribution of those products.

“Life-saving products belong in the hands of the heroes who are saving lives – both in the United States and around the globe. We urge G20 leaders to fortify the global supply chains that make these products possible by lifting tariffs and export restrictions and avoiding barriers to trade that will otherwise impede efforts to save lives,” Jahn added.
