SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Section 135 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2155), 
established a 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)(1) 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(a)(2) directs the President to:
    Consult with representative elements of the private sector and the 
non-Federal governmental sector on the overall current trade policy of 
the United States. The consultations shall include, but are not limited 
to, the following elements of such policy:
    (A) The principal multilateral and bilateral trade negotiating 
objectives and the progress being made toward their achievement.
    (B) The implementation, operation, and effectiveness of recently 
concluded multilateral and bilateral trade agreements and resolution of 
trade disputes.
    (C) The actions taken under the trade laws of the United States and 
the effectiveness of such actions in achieving trade policy objectives.
    (D) Important developments in other areas of trade for which there 
must be developed a proper policy response.
    Section 135(c)(3) provides that:
    [T]he President may, if necessary, establish policy advisory 
committees representing non-Federal governmental interests to provide 
policy advice on matters referred to in Section 135(a), and with 
respect to implementation of trade agreements.
    Pursuant to these provisions, the Office of the U.S. Trade 
Representative established the IGPAC.

Functions

    The duties of the IGPAC are to provide the President, through the 
United States Trade Representative, with advice, and policy 
recommendations on matters related to trade that have a significant 
relationship to the affairs of non-Federal governmental interests 
including any U.S. state, territory, or possession, and any political 
subdivision, agency, or instrumentality thereof. The IGPAC will meet as 
needed at the call of the United States Trade Representative or his 
designee depending on various factors such as the level of activity of 
trade negotiations and the needs of the United States Trade 
Representative, or at the call of two-thirds of the IGPAC members.

the nominee's knowledge of and expertise in international trade issues 
as relevant to the work of the IGPAC. While all or almost all IGPAC 
members will represent their sponsoring non-Federal entities' 
interests, it is possible that the United States Trade Representative 
may appoint members who serve in an individual capacity as subject 
matter experts. Appointments to the IGPAC are made without regard to 
political affiliation with an interest in ensuring balance in terms of 
sectors, demographics, and other factors relevant to the IGPAC's needs.
