Rejected petition Avoid trade with China and the USA as much as possible.

China has evaded criticism on their reaction to COVID-19 and used the considerate weight of their economy to dismiss investigations. The USA has focused only on their economic situation over the health of their citizens. Both countries have shown a lack of empathy and concern for their citizens, this completely goes against the basic thoughts of most Welsh people. We are in a situation were we can disregard these influences and as a part of the 'UK' we should be supported. Investigate China!

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Powers over international trade are not devolved to the Senedd or Welsh Government. They are the responsibility of the UK Parliament and Government. Therefore it is not possible for the Senedd to take the action requested by your petition in any meaningful way.

You may wish to consider starting a petition to the UK Parliament instead:
