"SOCMA has a long and proud history of supporting free and fair trade, and TPP will allow small, medium and large chemical manufacturers to be more competitive in the global economy," said SOCMA President and CEO Lawrence D. Sloan. "SOCMA acknowledges that the agreement is not perfect, but without it, the United States is resigning economic leadership to other global powers in the Asia-Pacific region. We will continue to work with our members to ensure that any of their concerns about the agreement are addressed."
Since 1921 SOCMA has represented a diverse membership of small, medium and large chemical companies located around the world bringing world-class support uniquely tailored to enhance the operational excellence of our member companies. SOCMA is the only U.S.-based trade association dedicated solely to the specialty chemical industry, making us the leading authority on this sector. www.socma.com.
