Background The decision to launch negotiations for a U.S.-EU trade agreement is an important step toward achieving fairer, more balanced trade with the EU and follows the July 25, 2018 meeting between President Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. In the joint statement issued following their July 25th meeting, President Trump and President Juncker affirmed the intention of the United States and the EU to address both tariff and non-tariff barriers in their trading relationship. On October 16, 2018, following consultations with relevant Congressional committees, the United States Trade Representative informed Congress that the President intends to commence negotiations with the EU for a U.S.-EU Trade Agreement. 2. Public Comment and Hearing The TPSC invites interested parties to submit comments and/or oral testimony to assist USTR as it develops negotiating objectives and positions for the agreement, including with regard to objectives identified in section 102 of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (19 U.S.C. 4201). In particular, the TPSC invites interested parties to comment on issues including, but not limited to, the following: a. General and product-specific negotiating objectives for the proposed agreement. b. Relevant barriers to trade in goods and services between the U.S. and the EU that should be addressed in the negotiations. c. Economic costs and benefits to U.S. producers and consumers of removal or reduction of tariffs and removal or reduction of non-tariff barriers on articles traded with the EU. d. Treatment of specific goods (described by HTSUS numbers) under the proposed agreement, including comments on: PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 i. Product-specific import or export interests or barriers. ii. Experience with particular measures that should be addressed in the negotiations. iii. Ways to address export priorities and import sensitivities in the context of the proposed agreement. e. Customs and trade facilitation issues that should be addressed in the negotiations. f. Sanitary and phytosanitary measures and technical barriers to trade that should be addressed in the negotiations. g. Other measures or practices that undermine fair market opportunities for U.S. businesses, workers, farmers, and ranchers that should be addressed in the negotiations. USTR must receive written comments no later than Monday, December 10, 2018. USTR requests that small businesses, generally defined by the Small Business Administration as firms with fewer than 500 employees, or organizations representing small business members, which submit comments to self-identify as such, so that we may be aware of issues of particular interest to small businesses. The TPSC will hold a hearing on December 14, 2018, in the Auditorium of the Herbert C. Hoover Building, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230. If necessary, the hearing will continue on the next business day. Persons wishing to testify at the hearing must provide written notification of their intention by December 10, 2018.
