U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ISSUES COMMENT ON SEPTEMBER TRADE FIGURES

 WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued the following comment on September trade figures by Willard A. Workman, vice president, international, U.S. Chamber of Commerce:
 The 1993 trade figures thus far underscore the importance of President Clinton's meetings in Seattle today and tomorrow with leaders of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum countries.
 Trade with the Pacific Rim countries has accounted for more than 28 percent of all American sales overseas, second only to our NAFTA partners. By the same token, we are one of the Pacific Rim's best customers with more than 39 percent of U.S. imports coming from that region, followed by NAFTA in second place with 26 percent and the European Community with 16.7 percent.
 In September, increased sales of telecommunications equipment, foods, feeds and beverages and non-monetary gold offset a $376 million drop in aircraft sales to swell U.S. exports by $800 million. The strengthening U.S. economy drew in $1.7 billion more in imports than in August, leading to the $800 million deficit increase.
