WASHINGTON, Jan 17 - US Commerce Secretary nominee Wilbur Ross will tell senators on Wednesday that he is not "anti-trade" but the United States should not put up with malicious trading practices or unfair subsidies from foreign trading partners.

"I am not anti-trade. I am pro-trade. But I am pro-sensible trade, not trade that is detrimental to the American worker and to the domestic manufacturing base," Ross said in a prepared testimony to the Senate Finance Committee that was obtained by Reuters.
