SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: In his letter of November 8, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 (TPA Act) (19 U.S.C. 4204(a)(2)(B)(i)(III)) with respect to the effects of providing dutyfree treatment for imports of products from the United Kingdom (UK). 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 the UK 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 TPA Act, of the probable economic effects of eliminating tariffs on imports from the UK 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 https:// www.usitc.gov. For the purposes of these analyses, the USTR requested that the Commission assume the UK will no longer be a Member State of the European Union. The USTR indicated that those sections of the Commission’s report that relate to advice and assessment of probable economic effects will be classified. The USTR also indicated that he considers the Commission’s report to be an interagency memorandum that will contain pre-decisional advice and be subject to the deliberative process privilege. As requested, the Commission will provide its report to the USTR as soon as possible, and no later than May 8, 2019.
