U.S.-Kenya Trade Agreement: Advice on the Probable Economic Effect of Providing Duty-Free Treatment for Currently Dutiable Imports Institution of Investigation and Scheduling of Hearing
The International Trade Commission (ITC), at the request of the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), is seeking public comment on the probable economic effect of providing duty-free treatment for imports of currently dutiable products from Kenya on (1) industries in the United States producing like or directly competitive products, and (2) consumers. USTR has asked that ITC’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 SBA Office of Advocacy encourages small businesses, as defined by SBA size standards, or organizations representing small business members that submit comments to self-identify so that the ITC may be aware of issues of particular interest to small firms.
