Background: In his letter of October 26, 2018, the USTR 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 105(a)(2)(B)(i)(III) of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (19 U.S.C. 4204(a)(2)(B)(i)(III) with respect to the effects of providing duty-free treatment for imports of products from Japan. 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 currently dutiable products from Japan on (i) industries in the United States producing like or directly competitive products, and (ii) 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 U.S. tariffs will remain, taking into account implementation of U.S. commitments in the World Trade Organization. The USTR asked that the advice be based on the HTS in effect during 2018 and trade data for 2017. In addition, the USTR requested that the Commission prepare an assessment, as described in section 105(a)(2)(B)(i)(III) of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, of the probable economic effects of eliminating tariffs on imports from Japan of those agricultural products described in the list attached to the USTR’s request letter on (i) industries in the United States producing the products concerned, and (ii) the U.S. economy as a whole. The USTR’s request letter and list of agricultural products are posted on the Commission’s website at http:// www.usitc.gov. As requested, the Commission will provide its report to the USTR as soon as possible. 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 E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1
