GLOBAL ISSUES AFFECTING U.S. INDUSTRIES AND THE TECHNOLOGICAL COMPETITIVENESS OF THE UNITED STATES ARE FOCUS OF ITC QUARTERLY PUBLICATION

Express services negotiations within the WTO, production sharing developments in 1999, and new U.S. legislation affecting the apparel industry are among the topics explored in the current issue of Industry Trade and Technology Review (ITTR), a quarterly publication of the U.S. International Trade Commission's Office of Industries.

Industry Trade and Technology Review (ITTR) contains articles originating from research and analysis conducted by International Trade Commission (ITC) staff as part of its responsibilities to provide advice and technical information on industry and trade issues. The ITTR provides analysis of important issues and insights into the global position of U.S. industries, the technological competitiveness of the United States, and implications of trade and policy developments.

The ITTR is a publication of the Office of Industries. The opinions and conclusions it contains are those of the authors and are not the views of the Commission or of any individual Commissioner.

The current issue (July 2000) includes the following articles:

In addition, the publication includes an appendix charting key performance indicators for the steel, automobile, aluminum, flat glass, and services industries, as well as for North American trade. The current issue also includes an appendix of selected statistical tables for 1999 U.S. imports under the production sharing provisions of HTS chapter 98.

Industry Trade and Technology Review (USITC Publication 3335, July 2000) will be posted on the ITC's Internet server at www.usitc.gov. A cumulative list of articles published in the report series is also posted. The ITTR will also be available at regional federal depository libraries in the United States.
