ITC studies U.S. aluminum industry, trade

The U.S. International Trade Commission has launched a study of the aluminum industry in the United States and its place within the global aluminum trade.

   The U.S. International Trade Commission has started a study of the U.S. aluminum industry and its place within the global aluminum trade.
   The study, Aluminum: Competitive Conditions Affecting the U.S. Industry, was requested by the House Ways and Means Committee on Feb. 24.
   The fact-finding agency’s report covers competitive factors in major unwrought and wrought (semi-fabricated) aluminum producing and exporting countries, including the United States. It will also examine industry characteristics, recent trade trends and developments, competitive strengths and weakness, factors driving unwrought-production capacity increases, and government policies that affect aluminum production and exports in these countries.
   The ITC said it will “perform a qualitative, and to the extent possible, quantitative assessment of the impact of government policies and programs in the selected foreign countries on aluminum production, exports, consumption, and domestic prices, as well as on the U.S. aluminum industry and global aluminum markets.”
   It will hold a public hearing related to the investigation at its Washington, D.C. headquarters on Sept. 29. Written comments are due to the ITC by Feb. 21, 2017. For more details, visit the ITC’s website.
   The agency expects to deliver its report to the House Ways and Means Committee by June 24, 2017.
