Background: In response to an earlier request from the USTR, the Commission, on June 2, 2010, delivered a report to the USTR containing its advice and assessment in investigation Nos. TA–131–034 and TA–2104–026, U.S.-Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement: Advice on Probable Economic Effect of Providing Duty-Free Treatment for Imports, relating to the effects of a possible free trade agreement with seven countries (Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam). In his letter of October 5, 2010, the USTR advised the Commission that Malaysia has joined the negotiations, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, and requested that the Commission provide certain advice under section 131 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2151) and an assessment under section 2104(b)(2) of the Trade Act of 2002 (19 U.S.C. 3804(b)(2)) with respect to the effects of providing duty-free treatment for imports from all eight countries. More specifically, the USTR, under authority delegated by the President and pursuant to section 131 of the Trade Act of 1974, requested that the Commission provide a report containing its advice as to the probable economic effect of providing duty-free treatment for imports of products from the eight TPP partner countries (Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam) on (i) industries in the United States producing like or directly competitive products, and (ii) on consumers. The USTR asked that the Commission’s analysis consider each article in chapters 1 through 97 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) for which tariffs will remain, taking into account PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65031 implementation of U.S. commitments in the World Trade Organization and under U.S. free trade agreements in force between the United States and TPP partner countries. The USTR asked that the advice be based on the HTS in effect during 2010 and trade data for 2008. The USTR also requested that the Commission, in preparing its advice, assume that any known U.S. non-tariff barrier will not be applicable to such imports, and that the Commission note in its report any instance in which the continued application of a U.S. nontariff barrier would result in different advice with respect to the effect of the removal of the duty. In addition, the USTR requested that the Commission prepare an assessment, pursuant to section 2104(b)(2) of the Trade Act of 2002, of the probable economic effects of eliminating tariffs on imports from the TPP countries of those agricultural products on the list attached to his letter on (i) industries in the United States producing the product concerned, and (ii) the U.S. economy as a whole. The USTR asked that the Commission identify in its report, among other things, any changes in its advice from the advice delivered on June 2, 2010, that did not include Malaysia. The USTR also stated that the Commission need not repeat analysis and discussion included in that earlier report. The USTR further asked that the Commission, to the extent appropriate, draw from discussion and analysis in its report delivered to USTR on June 30, 2006, relating to a U.S.-Malaysia FTA (investigation Nos. TA–131–033 and TA–2104–022, U.S.-Malaysia Free Trade Agreement: Advice Concerning the Probable Economic Effect of Providing Duty-Free Treatment for Imports). As requested, the Commission will provide its report to the USTR by January 7, 2011. The USTR indicated that those sections of the Commission’s report that relate to the advice and assessment of probable economic effects will be classified. The USTR also indicated that he considers the Commission’s report to be an interagency memorandum that will contain pre-decisional advice and be subject to the deliberative process privilege. Public Hearing: A public hearing in connection with these investigations will be held at the U.S. International Trade Commission Building, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC, beginning at 9:30 a.m., November 17, 2010. Requests to appear at the public hearing should be filed with the Secretary not later than 5:15 p.m., November 10, 2010, in accordance with the requirements in E:\FR\FM\21OCN1.SGM 21OCN1
