The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is expanding an opportunity for the trade community to help inform the development of trade and investment policy initiatives that promote supply chain resilience.

USTR has said that the Biden administration is “undertaking a whole-of-government effort to proactively strengthen domestic manufacturing and to secure trusted supply chains through strategic arrangements with trusted partners (friend-shoring) and with regional partners (near-shoring).” USTR’s part in this effort is to advance and implement principles of supply chain resilience through trade negotiations, efforts to enforce fair trade, and other engagement with trading partners. To inform that work the agency is seeking information on a number of topics identified in this notice.

USTR previously set an April 22 deadline for written comments and announced a May 2 public hearing. USTR has now scheduled additional hearings for May 14 in St. Paul, Minn.; May 23 (virtual); and May 28 in New York City. Requests to appear at these hearings are due by April 24 and post-hearing comments are due by June 4.
