GUEST COMMENTARY: Trade with China benefits Alaska and should be encouraged

Future economic development in Alaska relies on outside customers; Alaska’s resources are so vast that their market is worldwide.

We should celebrate being an international exporter and be concerned when local voices speak negatively about our business partners around the world. Discouraging outside investment will not build a stronger Alaska, but prevent our resources getting to world markets and to Alaskans. Disparaging our customers shrinks our economy at a time when we desperately need growth.
