Chamber calls out China on protectionism practices

Brilliant's comments came at the 10th Anniversary of the People's Republic of China's Quality Brand Protection Committee, where he warned the policy, if not changed, would "invite similar discriminatory policies in China's vital export markets, putting additional pressure on export job creation and growth."

"Put simply, ongoing approaches by China are eroding the support of China's long-standing advocates in the United States, diminishing the many good arguments we have used historically in support of this relationship," Brilliant said. 

The Chamber has historically defended China against legislation targeting its economic policies. Today's speech by Brilliant signaled that relationship would end if the country refused to change its ways.
