Coalition for GSP Joins with Leading Trade Groups to Announce 5th Annual “Imports Work” Week

Yesterday, the Coalition for GSP joined with nearly two dozen leading trade groups to announce that the fifth annual “Imports Work” Week will take place from May 9-13, 2016.

A study unveiled during Imports Work Week in 2013 found that 16 million U.S. jobs depend on imports. Another study by HSBC shows that imports save the average U.S. family $13,600 a year.  Yet another 2013 study found that the U.S. value-added for imported apparel equals about 70 percent. And of course, numerous Coalition for GSP reports have shown the positive impacts of the GSP program on American companies – and the negative impacts when Congress allows GSP to expire.
