The June meeting will include updates on implementation of the Call to Action from the May 2020 meeting and recommendations from prior meetings, and discussions of new recommendations under each of the four main goals of the Advisory Board: • Develop a Campaign to Promote Multiple Pathways to Career Success. Companies, workers, parents, and policymakers have traditionally assumed that a university degree is the best, or only, path to a middle-class career. Employers and job seekers should be aware of multiple career pathways and skill development opportunities outside of traditional 4year degrees. • Increase Data Transparency to Better Match American Workers with American Jobs. High-quality, transparent, and timely data can significantly improve the ability of employers, students, job seekers, education providers, and policymakers to make informed choices about education and employment—especially for matching education and training programs to in-demand jobs and the skills needed to fill them. • Modernize Candidate Recruitment and Training Practices. Employers often struggle to fill job vacancies, yet their hiring practices may actually reduce the pool of qualified job applicants. To acquire a talented workforce, employers must better identify the skills needed for specific jobs and communicate those needs to education providers, job seekers, and students.

The size, scope, and impacts of education and skills training investments are still not fully understood. There is a lack of consistent data on company balance sheets and in federal statistics.

(Commercial Passenger Jet Aircraft); Mobile, Irvington and Theodore, Alabama Airbus Americas, Inc. (Airbus) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facilities in Mobile, Irvington and Theodore, Alabama. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on June 2, 2020. Airbus already has authority to produce commercial passenger jet aircraft within FTZ 82. The current request would add foreign status materials/components to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status materials/components described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Airbus from customs duty payments on the foreign-status materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status materials/components noted below, Airbus would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to commercial passenger jet aircraft (dutyfree). Airbus would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:08 Jun 08, 2020 Jkt 250001 The materials/components sourced from abroad include: Cetyl alcohol; biocides and fungicides; wash primers and adhesion promoters; epoxy fillers; plastic tubes; polyamide plastic sheet and strip; logbooks; carbon prepreg material; steel holding tank assemblies; steel non-threaded fasteners, pins and inserts; aluminum powder; mirrors; hand pumps for dispensing liquids; refrigerator and freezer units; air filter elements and parts; trash compactors; pressure regulators and bleed valves; AC generators not exceeding 75kVAs; fire detection units; resistors and overheat sensing elements; printed circuit modules; circuit breakers; relays and contactors; electrical backshells and contacts; temperature sensors; tachometers; tachometer accessories; and, voltmeters and multimeters without recording devices (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 6.5%). The request indicates that certain materials/ components may be subject to duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is July 20, 2020. A copy of the notification will be available for public inspection in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s website, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.
