Americans for Free Trade spokesperson Jonathan Gold released the following statement calling on United States Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai to extend all tariff exclusions for products needed to combat COVID-19 and reinstate tariffs exclusions for other Section 301 products.
“As the Delta variant continues to surge across the nation, it is critical that the Biden administration does everything it can to protect American workers, consumers, and businesses – including extending tariff exclusions on products used to fight COVID-19. We are calling on Ambassador Tai to issue an immediate blanket extension on any and all products needed to fight the pandemic. In order to help sustain our economy, USTR should strongly consider granting and reinstating exclusions to all the products identified by the U.S. International Trade Commission in the revision to its 2020 report.”
