Background

The Committee was established under the discretionary authority of the Secretary of Commerce and in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. 2). It provides advice to the Secretary of Commerce on the necessary elements of a comprehensive policy approach to supply chain competitiveness designed to support U.S. export growth and national economic competitiveness, encourage innovation, facilitate the movement of goods, and improve the competitiveness of U.S. supply chains for goods and services in the domestic and global economy; and provides advice to the Secretary on regulatory policies and programs and investment priorities that affect the competitiveness of U.S. supply chains.

Matters To Be Considered

Committee members are expected to deliberate and vote on the Trade and Competitiveness subcommittee's recommendation to Secretary Pritzker, which generally urges the Administration to expand market access for U.S. firms to international markets, implement the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), support customs trade transformation initiatives, and ensure our trading partners' compliance with our trade agreements. This recommendation, available at: http://trade.gov/​td/​services/​oscpb/​supplychain/​acscc/​documents/​May%2021%202015%20Conf%20Call/​ACSCC%20trade%20ltr%20to%20SPP%20TC%20Subcomm.pdf, has been reviewed and discussed over the last several open meetings of the ACSCC, most recently at the April 16 meeting. The Office of Supply Chain, Professional & Business Services will post the final agenda and the recommendation on its Web site at least one week prior to the meeting. The conference call will be open to the public and press on a first-come, first-served basis. Access lines are limited. The minutes of the meetings will be posted on the Committee Web site within 60 days of the meeting.
