SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Replacement of Trade Mission Statement. SUMMARY: Background The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration is amending the dates of the Healthcare Business Development Mission to China to Oct. 16–21, 2016. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Replacement Healthcare Business Development Mission to China, October 16–21, 2016 The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, is organizing an executive-led Healthcare Business Development Mission to China with an emphasis on the Sector. The mission will be led by the Deputy Secretary of Commerce with participation from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to facilitate access to the appropriate Chinese government agencies. The purpose of the mission is open access to Chinese government health officials and to introduce U.S. firms and trade associations to the Chinese Healthcare market as well as assist U.S. companies to find business partners and export their products and services to China. The mission is intended to include representatives from U.S. companies and U.S. trade associations with members that provide high end, innovative medical devices (especially imaging), healthcare technology equipment, innovative pharmaceuticals, VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:27 Aug 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 hospital management or senior care management solutions, and medical education or training, hospital cooperation (i.e. management and education), as well as pharmaceuticals and senior care segments. Healthcare is an important issue for both the China. Today, China’s annual healthcare spending is about $590.2 billion or 5.7% of its GDP. Commerce and health are not mutually exclusive, as workers become ill and as the cost of healthcare and insurance increases there is a direct impact on business through the loss of worker productivity and skilled workers, and reduced output. With fewer healthy workers earning incomes, businesses will also be harmed by decreased size and purchasing power of consumers. Families and individuals will be burdened with the impact of reduced incomes, increased health costs, and increased likelihood of long term care. As the world’s two largest economies, how the two sides approach healthcare in the future has the potential to impact global macroeconomic stability and future economic growth. In recent years China has prioritized the reform of its healthcare system, to ensure citizens have good quality and affordable care, especially given the trends in the population and the increase in various health issues. The aging population, chronic disease and lack of fitness for children create challenges and burdens on establishing an effective healthcare system. Incidence of non-communicable disease (NCDs) such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes has rapidly increased. Economic growth is also impeded because NCDs hit workers in their prime years of productivity— creating long term chronic conditions, withdrawal from the workforce, diminished family resources and early death. Tackling the prevalence and significance of NCDs is challenging. The causes are rooted in the universal trends of aging and rapid urbanization, demographic factors which will only increase in the future. Facing similar challenges and possessing common goals to achieve a successful healthcare ecosystem, the United States and China are well positioned to share experiences and find solutions to existing problems through uniting government and private sector forces at the intersection of commerce and healthcare. Areas of mutual collaboration in the healthcare could PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 focus on improving patient access and services delivery, as well as areas of cooperation to benefit the health and lives of the population. As China reforms its’ healthcare system and endeavors to create an innovative medical device and pharmaceutical industry it risks the alienation of foreign firms in the market. This trade mission will offer U.S. firms not only the opportunity to market their products and services, but also to explore ways that U.S. industry can support China’s efforts to reform their healthcare system through win-win bilateral healthcare cooperation. The trade mission will include oneon-one business appointments with prescreened potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners; meetings with national and regional government officials, chambers of commerce, and business groups; and networking receptions for companies and trade associations representing companies interested in expansion into the Chinese markets. Meetings will be offered with government authorities (such as the National Health and Family Planning Commission, China Food and Drug Administration, Ministry of Human Resources and Social Services, and Ministry of Civil Affairs) that can address questions about policies, tariff rates, incentives, regulations, etc. Schedule Sunday, October 16 D Business Delegation arrives Beijing D Business Delegation Meet and Greet/ Icebreaker Monday, October 17 D China Economic and Market briefing by U.S. Embassy staff on programs and opportunities in the Healthcare Sector D Business Delegation Meeting with Vice Minister of National Health and Planning Commission D Lunch hosted by Healthcare Association D Business Delegation Meeting with Vice Minister of China Food and Drug Administration D Business Delegation Meeting with Vice Minister of Ministry of Human Resources and Social Services Tuesday, October 18 D Business Delegation Meeting with Vice Minister of Ministry of Civil Affairs E:\FR\FM\29AUN1.SGM 29AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Under the authority of the Strategic and Critical Materials Stock 
Piling Revision Act of 1979, as amended (the Stock Piling Act) (50 
U.S.C. 98, et seq.), the Department of Defense's Defense Logistics 
Agency (DLA), as National Defense Stockpile Manager, maintains a 
stockpile of strategic and critical materials to supply the military, 
industrial, and essential civilian needs of the United States for 
national defense. Section 9(b)(2)(G)(ii) of the Stock Piling Act (50 
U.S.C. 98(h)(b)(2)(G)(ii)) authorizes the National Defense Stockpile 
Manager to fund material research and development projects to develop 
new materials for the stockpile.
    Section 3314 of the Fiscal Year (FY) 1993 National Defense 
Authorization Act (NDAA) (50 U.S.C. 98h-1) formally established a 
Market Impact Committee (the Committee) to ``advise the National 
Defense Stockpile Manager on the projected domestic and foreign 
economic effects of all acquisitions and disposals of materials from 
the stockpile. . . .'' The Committee must also balance market impact 
concerns with the statutory requirement to protect the U.S. Government 
against avoidable loss.
    The Committee is comprised of representatives from the Departments 
of Commerce, State, Agriculture, Defense, Energy, Interior, the 
Treasury, and Homeland Security, and is co-chaired by the Departments 
of Commerce and State. The FY 1993 NDAA directs the Committee to 
consult with industry representatives that produce, process, or consume 
the materials stored in or of interest to the National Defense 
Stockpile Manager.
    As the National Defense Stockpile Manager, the DLA must produce an 
Annual Materials Plan proposing the maximum quantity of each listed 
material that may be acquired, disposed of, upgraded, converted, or 
sold by the DLA in a particular fiscal year. In Attachment 1, the DLA 
lists the quantities and type of activity (potential acquisition, 
potential disposal, potential upgrade, potential conversion, or 
potential sale) associated with each material in its proposed FY 2018 
Annual Materials Plan (``AMP''). The quantities listed in Attachment 1 
are not acquisition, disposal, upgrade, conversion or sales target 
quantities, but rather a statement of the proposed maximum quantity of 
each listed material that may be acquired, disposed of, upgraded, 
converted, or sold in a particular fiscal year by the DLA, as noted. 
The quantity of each material that will actually be acquired or offered 
for sale will depend on the market for the material at the time of the 
acquisition or offering, as well as on the quantity of each material 
approved for

[[Page 59182]]

acquisition, disposal, conversion, or upgrade by Congress.
    The Committee is seeking public comments on the potential market 
impact associated with the proposed FY 2018 AMP as enumerated in 
Attachment 1. Public comments are an important element of the 
Committee's market impact review process.

Submission of Comments

comments, supporting data and documentation, and any other relevant 
information on the potential market impact of the quantities associated 
with the proposed FY 2018 AMP. All comments must be submitted to the
