NAW Commends Biden Administration’s Executive Order Promoting Competition on Dominant e-Commerce Platforms

July 9, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s executive order aimed at holding dominant eCommerce platforms accountable for unfair acts against small businesses and distributors across the country.

From Blake Adami, NAW Vice President of Government Relations

“On behalf of the $6 trillion wholesale distribution industry, we commend the Biden administration for taking action against dominant e-commerce platforms like Amazon that use proprietary information to unfairly compete against small businesses and distributors across the country that sell on Amazon’s marketplace.

“NAW is committed to fighting unfair acts by monopolistic companies and we urge Congress to quickly pass the House Judiciary committee’s antitrust bills. We also strongly encourage the General Service Administration (GSA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to partner with Congress to review GSA’s current pilot e-Commerce Portal program which unfairly gives Amazon monopoly power in federal government procurement.”
