Have You Encountered Trade Barriers?

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) wants to solve your trade problems!

On July 30, the USITC announced that they are putting together a report that will identify trade-related barriers affecting U.S. small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).  The focus is on trade with the European Union (EU).  As part of the information-gathering process, they will be conducting an October 8 hearing on these issues.

This is our opportunity to identify anything that adversely affects trade between the US and Europe.  The United States is negotiating a trade agreement with the EU so this hearing is an excellent opportunity to get our concerns addressed (before it is too late!).

Pre-hearing written comments are due by September 20, 2013.  ASA plans to submit a filing addressing our members’ concerns to please get your comments into ASA not later than September 13, so we can make sure your comments are reflected in our filing.
