TGA urges companies to join a draft industry letter opposing President Trump’s decision to increase punitive tariffs on U.S. imports of travel goods from China from 25% to 30% on October 15. The draft industry letter would be submitted as part of a public comment period on the proposed increase in tariffs. Note that on September 11, President Trump, via tweet, announced a delay in the implementation date for the increased tariffs from October 1 to October 15. Please contact TGA’s Nate Herman if your company wants to sign the draft industry letter. The deadline to add your company (just the name of your company, as you would like it to appear on the letter – NO SIGNATURES) is today – Thursday, September 19.
