On August 20, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative, at the direction of the President, determined to modify the action being taken in the investigation by imposing an additional 10 percent ad valorem duty on products of China with an annual aggregate trade value of approximately $300 billion. See 84 FR 43304 (August 20, 2019) (the August 20 notice). The tariff subheadings subject to the 10 percent additional duties were separated into two lists with different effective dates. The list in Annex A had an effective date of September 1, 2019. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:42 Jan 21, 2020 Jkt 250001 The list in Annex C had an effective date of December 15, 2019. Subsequently, at the direction of the President, the U.S. Trade Representative determined to increase the rate of the additional duty applicable to the tariff subheadings covered by the action announced in the August 20 notice from 10 percent to 15 percent. See 84 FR 45821 (August 30, 2019). On December 18, 2019, at the direction of the President, the U.S. Trade Representative determined to suspend indefinitely the imposition of the additional 15 percent ad valorem duty on products covered by Annex C of the August 20 notice. See 84 FR 69447 (December 18, 2019). B. Determination To Modify Action The Section 301 statute, which is set out in Sections 301 to 308 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2411–2418), includes authority for the U.S. Trade Representative to modify the action being taken in an investigation. In particular, Section 307(a)(1) authorizes the U.S. Trade Representative to modify or terminate any action taken under Section 301, subject to the specific direction, if any, of the President, if the burden or restriction on United States commerce of the acts, policies, and practices that are the subject of the action has increased or decreased, or the action being taken under Section 301(b) and no longer is appropriate. The United States is engaging with China with the goal of obtaining the elimination of the acts, policies, and practices covered in the investigation. On December 13, 2019, following months of negotiations, the United States and China reached an agreement on a phase one trade deal that requires structural reforms and other changes to China’s economic and trade regime, including with respect to certain issues covered in this Section 301 investigation. The United States and China signed the phase one agreement on January 15, 2020, and the agreement is scheduled to enter into force 30 days thereafter on February 14, 2020. In light of the scheduled entry into force of the phase one agreement, and at the direction of the President, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined that the action announced on August 20, 2019, as modified by the August 30 notice, no longer is appropriate. Specifically, and in accordance with the President’s direction, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to reduce the level of additional duties from 15 percent to 7.5 percent on products of China covered by Annex A of the August 20 notice, effective February 14, 2020. PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3741 The U.S. Trade Representative’s decision to modify the action being taken in this investigation takes into account the extensive comments and testimony previously provided in connection with the August 20 modification. The Annex to this notice amends the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) to provide that the additional duties for the products covered in Annex A of the August 20 notice will be reduced to 7.5 percent. The U.S. Trade Representative will continue to consider the actions being taken in this investigation. In the event that further modifications are appropriate, the U.S. Trade Representative intends to take into account the extensive comments and testimony previously provided. Annex Effective with respect to goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on February 14, 2020, subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States is modified: 1.
