AFT Statement Following Publication of Section 301 Continuance Requests

WASHINGTON, D.C., (October 10, 2022)  Americans for Free Trade (AFT) spokesperson Jonathan Gold released the below statement following the Office of the United States Trade Representative’s (USTR) publication of comments requesting an extension of Section 301 tariffs on imports from China.

“We applaud USTR’s move to finally publish these comments. As we have stated in the past, it is essential for the review process to be fully transparent for all stakeholders affected by the tariffs, and this is a positive step in the right direction. We look forward to reviewing the comments that have been filed and to engaging with USTR as it begins the second phase of its review process, which we hope will begin in earnest soon.”
