USITC and SBA Listening Tour - San Francisco
Wed, December 5, 2018
8:30 AM – 12:30 PM PST

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) is conducting a study on the trade-related barriers that U.S. small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) believe are disproportionately affecting their exports to the United Kingdom (UK), as compared to larger U.S. firms. This is particularly important, considering the uncertainty caused by the approaching withdrawal of the UK from the European Union.

The USITC welcomes your views on this topic. If you are a U.S.-based SMEs that exports to the UK either directly or through your supply chain we are actively seeking out your perspective on this topic.
