SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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. For more information about the Committee visit: http://trade.gov/​td/​services/​oscpb/​supplychain/​acscc/​.

Matters to be Considered: Committee members are expected to deliberate and vote on a Committee letter outlining its priority recommendations for this Administration and a Committee letter outlining its recommendations for NAFTA negotiations. These letters will highlight the important issues that the Committee recommends that the Secretary of Commerce, in coordination with the Administration, address to improve the competitiveness of U.S. supply chains, facilitate new job growth within the United States, and increase U.S. exports.
