    Section 135 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2155), 
established a private-sector trade advisory system to ensure that U.S. 
trade policy and trade negotiation objectives adequately reflect U.S. 
commercial and economic interests.
    Section 135(a)(2) directs the President to: Seek information and 
advice from representative elements of the private sector and the non-
Federal governmental sector with respect to
    (A) Negotiating objectives and bargaining positions before entering 
into a trade agreement under [title I of the Trade Act of 1974 and 
section 2103 of the Bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority Act of 2002];
    (B) The operation of any trade agreement once entered into, 
including preparation for dispute settlement panel proceedings to which 
the United States is a party; and
    (C) Other matters arising in connection with the development, 
implementation, and administration of the trade policy of the United 
States.
    Section 135(c)(1) of the 1974 Trade Act provides that: [t]he 
President may establish individual general policy advisory committees 
for industry, labor, agriculture, services, investment, defense, and 
other interests, as appropriate, to provide general policy advice on 
matters referred to in subsection (a) of this section. Such committees

respectively, including small business interests, and shall be 
organized by the United States Trade Representative and the Secretaries 
of Commerce, Defense, Labor, Agriculture, the Treasury, or other 
executive departments, as appropriate. The members of such committees 
shall be appointed by the United States Trade Representative in 
consultation with such Secretaries.

President to convene the TACA ``in order to facilitate the goals and 
objectives of the African Growth and Opportunity Act and this Act, and 
to maintain ongoing discussions with African trade and agricultural 
ministries and private sector organizations on issues of mutual 
concern, including regional and international trade concerns and World 
Trade Organization issues.'' Pursuant to these provisions, the United
