TGA to Testify in Opposition to Trump Targeting Travel Goods in New $200B China Tariff Retaliation List – We Need Your Help!

TGA to Testify in Opposition to Trump Targeting Travel Goods in New $200B China Tariff Retaliation List – We Need Your Help!

Only July 25, TGA requested to testify at the August 20-23 hearing in opposition to the inclusion of travel goods on a new list of $200 billion worth of U.S. imports from China that President Trump is proposing will be subject to a 10% retaliatory tariff. The list includes all U.S. travel goods imports from China. If imposed, the 10% tariff would be added to the existing high tariffs on travel goods imported from China. This new punitive tariff has not yet been implemented, and you can help to stop them. The public now has the opportunity to comment on this new list. Requests to testify at the August 20-23 public hearing are due July 27, and written comments are due August 17. The Trump administration needs to hear from you – on how these punitive duties would hurt your company, and your workers. And TGA can help you draft that testimony/comments. Time is of the essence with public comment deadlines fast approaching. President Trump could impose the punitive duties on this list as soon as early October. Please contact TGA’s Nate Herman at 202-853-9351 or nate@travel-goods.org if you wish to testify/submit written comments/share anecdotes, have any questions, or would like additional information.
