The Committee advises the Secretary and USTR on trade matters referred to in section 135(a)(1) of the Act, and is consulted regarding the matters referred to in section 135(a)(2) of the Act. The Committee provides detailed policy and technical advice, information, and recommendations to the Secretary and USTR regarding trade barriers, negotiation of trade agreements under section 2103 of the Bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority Act of 2002, and implementation of existing trade agreements affecting its sector. 9180e21a-d892-4df7-8f5a-6c496da2c8a6 ITAC 10 (Services and Finance Industries) provides expert advice on the critically important services sector to U.S. government negotiators at USTR and the Commerce Department. This advice covers negotiating objectives, priorities, and how to achieve open trade markets for the services U.S. companies export. This advice helps the Commerce Department in its mission to make overseas markets more open to U.S. exports. 03643817-1f9a-4a79-aefc-1c8e82039673 Recommandations This Committee is essential to carry out the Secretary and USTR's responsibilities under section 135(c)(2) of the 1974 Trade Act, as delegated by E.O. 11846 of March 27, 1975. There is no other Committee that can perform the duties of this Committee. 4f48ada8-122a-425e-9024-6479f1b1156b Make, Accept, Implement 6a477b7f-9e84-40cf-b869-8280cd383ece 141726a2-3eb4-4805-83cc-1358f953627f Recommendations Made Number Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Services and Finance Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 On average 3-4 recommendations are submitted annually.

Therefore, it is not possible to determine a percentage of recommendations fully implemented. However, USTR and Commerce officials take the advice of ITAC 10 seriously in international trade negotiations. 0 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 4d5d28f0-f8c9-4975-9886-533ed8f3ed03 Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Services and Finance Department of Commerce There are sometimes a few proposals which were not funded in their entirety, those few being scaled back from their original level of requested funding (allowable under the program). n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 see above response 0 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
